Copenhagen & Beyond: A Multilateral Debate about Climate Change Policy
Tuesday, November 10, 2009 06:30 PM to 08:00 PM
The Kyoto Protocol, the primary international agreement to address climate change, expires in 2012. Leaders from throughout the world will meet in Copenhagen in December of this year to try to finalize a new agreement. The positions and participation of Japan, China, and the United States in any successor treaty will help determine its success or failure.
In this panel, Masayoshi Arai, Director, JETRO New York, Special Advisor, Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI); The Honorable Zhenmin Liu, Ambassador Extraordinary and Deputy Permanent Representative of China to the United Nations; Elliot Diringer, Vice President, International Strategies, Pew Center on Global Climate Change; and Takao Shibata, chair of the working group that drafted the Kyoto Protocol, debate the direction of international climate change policy.
