Join the HKS Center for Public Leadership for a discussion on climate negotiations with Dan Reifsnyder, co-chair to the Paris Climate Negotiations and former US Deputy Assistant Secretary for Environment. 

To avoid an irreversible climate catastrophe, representatives from over 200 countries and NGOs will gather in Glasgow this November to negotiate a global plan of action. With wildfires in Siberia, floods in Germany, and heat waves around the world, climate change is no longer some distant threat – it is causing devastating harm to people, communities and the natural world. The urgency is clear, but countries have very different views on how to move forward. In this speaker series, global climate leaders will discuss the negotiation strategies of developing nations, India, China, the U.S. and the EU. 

The program will be moderated by CPL Louis and Gabrielle Bacon Environmental Leadership Fellow Lia Cattaneo MPP/JD 2022 and hosted by Rand Wentworth, the Louis and Gabrielle Bacon Senior Fellow in Environmental Leadership and Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy.
