IPIECA’s side event at COP-21: Low emissions pathways and the role of oil and gas

The 21st session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will be held in December in Paris, France. IPIECA's key engagement will be a side-event on Low emissions pathways and the role of oil and gas, based on our Paris Puzzle materials. We will share our view on the pathway to a low-emissions future, including some of the challenges the world faces in the transition, and key responses. The panellists and audience will then be invited to share their thoughts on what they have heard, opening into a discussion on the actions needed to address climate change and the role of oil and gas.

We will be webcasting this event - please register to join by webinar.
