Lors de la session clôturant la conférence scientifique « Economie de l’énergie et du changement climatique », qui s’est déroulée à Toulouse les 8 et 9 septembre 2015, Serge Planton, responsable du groupe de recherche climatique au Centre National de Recherches Météorologiques, a présenté les dernières conclusions du 5ème rapport du GIEC dont il est co-éditeur, montrant la réalité du changement climatique, et décrivant plusieurs scenarii d’évolutions possibles… lire la suite

Why Finance Can Save the Planet / Jean Pisani-Ferry, professor at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin, Project Syndicate, 29/09/2015

Most people hate finance, viewing it as the epitome of irresponsibility and greed. But, even after causing a once-in-a-century recession and unemployment for millions, finance looks indispensable for preventing an even worse catastrophe: climate change… lire la suite

Sustainable Governance Goals / Tony Blair, Project Syndicate, 29/09/2015

To those who claim that conventional politics does not bring change, the Millennium Development Goals, adopted here in New York by the United Nations 15 years ago, are a powerful riposte. Not everything contained in the MDGs has been achieved, and no fragile country will completely achieve any of the goals by the time they expire at the end of this year. But huge progress was made: hundreds of millions of people have been lifted out of poverty, maternal mortality has been reduced by almost half, and millions more children are now in school… lire la suite

Can Deforestation be Stopped? / Michael Levi, Energy, Security and Climate, 29/09/2915

Why has Brazil slashed deforestation over the last decade while Indonesian deforestation has accelerated? The two countries lead the world in deforestation, which, after energy use, is the top source of greenhouse gas emissions. In the last week, each country has released an emissions-cutting plan in anticipation of the Paris climate summit that relies heavily on avoiding deforestation. Figuring out why Brazil has succeeded while Indonesia has lagged can provide insight into how both countries can do more…. lire la suite

Last week, during Xi Jingping’s visit to Washington D.C., President’s Obama and Xi issued a joint statement on climate change. This follows the announcement by both presidents during Obama’s visit to Beijing in November 2014 that the U.S. would cut its emissions 26-28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025 and that China would peak it carbon pollution by 2030 lire la suite

Positive Pricing of Carbon Reduction: A Low Hanging Fruit / Alfredo Sirkis, blog CEPII, 22/09/2015

A new UN Climate agreement will probably be signed by the end of this year with some incremental progress but even inveterate optimists like myself don’t believe it will be capable of ‘bridging the gap’ between the maximum that 196 governments can agree upon by consensus… lire la suite

An Investment Climate for Climate Investment / Sam Fankhauser, blog CEPII, 22/09/2015

Three factors hold back low-carbon investment in Europe: the risk/return profile of low-carbon investment projects, regulatory and behavioural features in the financial sector and a more global political economy context. These are key issues to create an investment climate for climate investment… lire la suite

Designing a Climate Change Displacement Coordination Facility: Key Issues for COP 21 / Jessica Wentz, Climate Law Blog, 28/09/2015

Since the first draft negotiating text was released last spring, the inclusion of a “climate change displacement coordination facility” in the anticipated Paris agreement has been on the table. Recently, in the wake of the migrant crisis in the Middle East and Europe, the prospect has gained some momentum. Yet, there has been very little public discussion about what this facility would entail and how it would operate… lire la suite
