CGD Annual Lecture 2015 with CCCEP and SRI: Assessing the Paris Moment
On 24th November 2015 CGD held its 2015 Annual Lecture in cooperation with CCCEP and SRI. We were pleased to welcome Professor Timmons Roberts who visited Leeds prior to the Paris COP meeting on Climate Change. He addressed a lecture theatre of around 100 people from across the University as well as outside guests. Discussants were Dr Rob Lawler (IDEA Centre) and Prof Suraje Dessai (Professor of Climate Change Adaptation), and the lecture was chaired by Dr Julia Steinberger (SRI). We are grateful to Prof Dessai who stepped in at the last minute to replace Professor Kate Pickett who was unable to attend. You can read a blog post about the event here.
