January 29, 2014 | Forests, Gender, and Vulnerable Populations: Setting the Pathway for a Global Climate Agreement
What is being done at a global scale to address climate change? And how are key topics of gender, communication, forests, and vulnerable populations fitting in to the climate change discussion? Join us as a group of expert CSU panelists discuss the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Warsaw, and its goal of a universal climate agreement by 2015. Key focal areas of the Warsaw conference included efforts to cut emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries and protection for poor nations most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. While progress was made at the conference, it was also met with criticism that it is too little, too late. Panelists will discuss progress of a global climate agreement and the many related topics that must be addressed.
