The CIGI '10 Climate of Action conference gathered over 60 experts in climate policy and science to join in a weekend of lively and innovative dialogue about the global governance of climate change. Throughout the conference, we sat down with many of our distinguished conference participants, to hear their points of view on some of the key topics covered in our roundtable discussions. This video series aims to provide a brief introduction to the issues, as well as a synopsis of the key messages and insights that arose from conference discussions.
In the first Roundtable discussion, participants took stock of where we stand today, and more importantly, what obstacles are blocking the road to future and meaningful progress. Participants focused much of their attention on past international climate negotiations, particularly the Copenhagen Conference of December 2009, which stood out as a failure in terms of delivering and enforcing substantial targets and action. Negotiator fatigue, lack of high-level expertise, a climate of mistrust, and a failure to follow through on commitments and program implementation are amongst the chief obstacles cited by conference participants regarding these negotiations. In the following video, conference participants elaborate on some of the problems with past international climate negotiations, as well as the lessons we can draw from these setbacks.
