SoGES examines climate change, who is most vulnerable

January 22, 2014

Some of the focus areas of the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Warsaw are emissions from deforestation, gender equality, and vulnerable populations. The School of Global Environmental Sustainability is presenting a panel of CSU experts who will discuss these topics and progress being made toward a global climate agreement.

Wednesday, Jan. 29
5-6:30 p.m.
Avogadro's Number
605 S. Mason Street

What are the impacts?

What is being done at a global scale to address climate change? And how are key topics of gender, communication, forests, and vulnerable populations fitting in to the climate change discussion?

The School of Global Environmental Sustainability invites you to a presentation by experts/panelists from Colorado State University who will discuss the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference held in Warsaw, and its goal of a universal climate agreement by 2015.

Warsaw conference outcomes

Key focal areas of the Warsaw conference included:

  • efforts to cut emissions from deforestation and forest degradation in developing countries, and
  • protection for poor nations most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.

While progress was made at the conference, it was also met with criticism that it is too little, too late. Panelists will discuss progress of a global climate agreement and the many related topics that must be addressed.

Featured panelists

Moderated by Gene Kelly, Chair, Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, SoGES Associate Director for Research & Development.
