The fourth and final talk in the 2019 series of Christ’s Climate Seminars will be given by Professor David Victor from the University of California San Diego. The Paris Agreement was a big step forward on climate change diplomacy, but disturbing news is now emerging around whether Paris is actually working. Emissions keep rising; warming is accelerating; efforts to reach diplomatic agreement even on topics that should be straightforward are faltering. This talk will offer a diagnosis of whether the Paris process is likely to work along with gameplans—for science, industry and government—to help make Paris more effective. It will also summarise what political scientists have learned from research on other areas of international cooperation—about why climate change has proved difficult to address so far and the kinds of lessons that might be learned from effective cooperation in financial policy, trade policy and others—that can guide policy reforms on climate change.
