OECD webcast Media Briefing on COP21 Climate Talks 15h Paris time (14h UK; 09h EST) on Friday 13 November


06/11/2015 - Will there be a meaningful deal at the COP21 Climate Summit in December and will it have more impact than past agreements? Is it realistic to imagine global emissions could peak in the next decade? When will climate pledges turn into action, and are we still in time to limit the global temperature rise to a safe level? Which countries are leading and which are lagging?

Two weeks before world leaders head to Paris for a historic round of UN climate talks, OECD Environment Director Simon Upton and Head of Climate Change Simon Buckle will answer questions from journalists in Paris and elsewhere at a webcast COP21 Media Briefing at the OECD’s headquarters. The briefing will draw on ongoing OECD work on climate change mitigation, climate finance, energy taxes, fossil fuel subsidies and the economic costs of climate change action.

Experts will also be present from the International Energy Agency, the Nuclear Energy Agency, the International Transport Forum and the OECD Economics Department.

To register to attend the briefing in person or receive dial-in details to join the webcast, journalists are invited to email Caroline Tourrier in the OECD Media Office (

Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
