COP 15 Copenhague 2009

Afin d'assurer sa visibilité internationale, la Chaire Modélisation prospective au service du développement durable a été accréditée, à travers ParisTech dont elle constitue la délégation officielle observatrice à l'ONU, pour participer à la Conférence des Nations Unies sur le Changement Climatique (UNFCCC-COP 15) à Copenhague en décembre 2009.
Une interview de Nadia MAIZI a été réalisée par la journaliste Edie LUSH pour une diffusion via CNN's iReport, et YouTube. [Télécharger]
La Chaire Modélisation prospective y a aussi organisé un side event, le seul français sélectionné dans l'enceinte internationale, sur le thème de "Beyond the financial crisis: Regional energy policy and global carbon constraints".
This  side  event  aims  to  bring  novel  insights  about the  most  appropriate  climate  architecture  to  coordinate  local  and  national policies and measures in order to lower GHGs emissions in a context of financial crisis.  It will rely on iteration between:

♦ the  latest  climate  policy  and  technology  scenarios  carried  out  by  the  ParisTech  Chair  Modeling  for  Sustainable Development,  scenarios  reflecting  the  financial  crisis  impacts  on  mitigation  objectives  for  the  2050  horizon,  and  latest national Copenhagen announcements on mitigation issues;

♦ national and regional scenarios and policy insights given by leading experts from Europe, Asia, South America, Africa, the Middle  East  and  the  Mediterranean  Basin,  that  consider  the  transition  towards  a  low  carbon  intensive  development pathways.

Based  on  their  experience  of  national  policies  and  of  the  international  process  (the  Kyoto  Protocol,  Den Hagen,  Marrakech, post-2012  negotiations,  the  EU  energy  and  environmental  package),  the  Panel  Experts  will  discuss  how  the  current  financial crisis changes (in a positive or negative way) the basic pre-conditions to be fulfilled to reach a global agreement in a near future.
