The Road to Glasgow: Climate Negotiations for a World on the Brink of Disaster
China’s climate negotiation strategy for Glasgow COP26
Please join the Center for Public Leadership for a discussion on climate negotiations with Michael Davidson, former U.S.-China Climate policy coordinator for the environmental nonprofit Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC). The program will be moderated by Henry Lee, Director of the Environment and Natural Resources Program at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and hosted by Rand Wentworth, the Louis and Gabrielle Bacon Senior Fellow in Environmental Leadership and Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy.
ABOUT THIS SERIES:
To avoid an irreversible climate catastrophe, representatives from over 200 countries and NGOs will gather in Glasgow this November to negotiate a global plan of action. With wildfires in Siberia, floods in Germany, and heat waves around the world, climate change is no longer some distant threat – it is causing devastating harm to people, communities and the natural world. The urgency is clear, but countries have very different views on how to move forward. In this speaker series, global climate leaders will discuss the negotiation strategies of developing nations, India, China, the U.S. and the EU.
This workshop series is co-hosted by the Bacon Environmental Program at the Center for Public Leadership, Climate@HKS, the Belfer Center’s Environment and Nature Resources Program and CEE PIC.
