This talk is part of the Cambridge Centre for Climate Science series.

I will review the long interaction between science and policy on climate change and specifically how the work of the Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has influenced international climate negotiations, culminating in the Paris agreement. I will give some insights into how the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) makes use of science, and also what it’s like to be at a Conference of the Parties. Finally I will review what was agreed at Paris, what the next steps are and how science might prepare for emerging policy challenges.
