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.
