Key Regional Actors and Sector Opportunities for International Climate Change Cooperation

Invitation Only

This day and half-long workshop will bring together about 15 representatives from key countries and regions to identify political and economic drivers of their climate policies and implications for international collective action. Countries include the major emitters of the United States, China, Europe, India, and a handful of others. Other regional representatives could come from Latin America, the Middle East, East Asia, Africa, and Australia.

The aim of the workshop is (1) to assess the political economy of domestic implementation of ambitious climate mitigation goals, (2) to discuss the lessons and prospects of international cooperation on sectoral and thematic areas (such as forests, energy production, energy efficiency, and monitoring), and (3) to identify how these domestic actions and sectoral opportunities affect country negotiating strategies going into Paris 2015 and beyond.

The workshop is being organized by the Stanley Center and the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas, Austin.
