Live-streamed seminar from climate change negotiations in Bonn
Please note – time changed to 11:00.
If global CO2 emissions continue to rise beyond 2020, or even remain level, the temperature commitments set in Paris and the Sustainable Development Goals the world agreed to in 2015 become unattainable. A panel of top experts will discuss the unprecedented pace and scale of emissions reductions necessary to meet the Paris Agreement.
