As the world prepares for the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in December, the Center for Energy Studies at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy and the Consulate General of France in Houston are pleased to host the “Confronting Climate Change: Policies and Opportunities” conference. The event is part of FACTS (French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS), a series of public conferences in 12 cities across the United States and Canada involving renowned scientists, civil society representatives, NGOs, political figures, journalists and entrepreneurs.
Two expert panels will share various views on policy options for confronting climate change. The first panel will focus on the role of regulation in preparing for climate change. Speakers also will explore the changing legal landscape from the perspectives of France and the United States. A second panel will consider how the business industry is positioning itself to address climate change going forward, with a particular focus on the energy sector.
