In December 2015, representatives of 187 developed and developing nations met in Paris for the Paris Climate Conference and, for the first time, agreed unanimously to an ambitious plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by the second half of this century. The Agreement is based on nationally determined contributions—voluntary pledges by individual nations to reduce their emissions — and on a process for increasing the ambition of those pledges over time.

The Agreement thus provides the architecture for national and international action on climate change for the foreseeable future. Expert faculty members, John Dernbach, who attended the conference, and Robert McKinstry, describe the Agreement and the U.S. pledge, the future of the Clean Power Plan (one of the building blocks of the U.S. pledge), and other actions that are being proposed or taken, or that are necessary, to implement the Paris Agreement.

Recorded during a live webinar in May 2016.
