Summary

Join this free seminar to discuss the consequences of the 2015 UNFCC Paris climate summit, in which 196 countries pledged individual Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) to meet global mean temperature targets by 2100. In contrast to past international climate efforts, INDC pledges were completely voluntary and represent a new, bottom-up approach to climate agreements.

The seminar will explore the benefits and risks of this voluntary bottom-up approach, as well as how behavioral and societal responses have or have not been included in the modeling of temperature targets, with an emphasize on potential insights from the behavioral and social sciences, including how multiple levels of organization-institutions, communities, and individual households-might differentially contribute to the successful implementation of INDC’s.

The event will be held from 10:00 AM till 3:00 PM at 500 5th Street, NW, Washington, DC.
