Climate – UNESCO – Laurent Fabius’s participation in the scientific conference on climate disruption (Paris, July 10, 2015) [fr]
Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, will bring UNESCO’s scientific conference on climate disruption to a close this afternoon.
2,000 scientists from 150 countries met in Paris for 4 days to take stock of the latest scientific knowledge. One year after the publication of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), this work made it possible - by exploring all scientific disciplines - to reflect on ways to address the challenges of climate change.
After 165 working sessions and high-level plenary meetings, scientists from all over the world were able to employ a collaborative and interdisciplinary approach to develop long-term scenarios in areas as diverse as urbanization, agriculture, the oceans and the economy as a whole and, for each scenario, develop the concrete solutions required to adhere to low carbon trajectories.
