The Paris Agreement on Climate Change - A Community Forum with Edward Cameron - Reading List

As everyone knows President Trump recently decided to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement on climate change.

Edward Cameron was one of the architects of the Paris agreement having worked on climate change for 20 years for the European Union, the government of the Maldives, the World Bank, the World Resources Institute and more recently as Managing Director of a global non-profit that brought the voice of progressive business to Paris. Cameron helped to write a number of the articles that appear in the Paris Agreement. Recently he was the only non-governmental and non-ministerial participant at a dinner in Berlin for 20 ministers from Europe, North America, and emerging economies as they privately discussed their collective response to President Trump’s decision. Cameron was invited to address the group and provide them with his assessment and suggestions for their engagement.

According to Cameron, climate change is often thought of as an environmental issue but fundamentally it is about human beings, their jobs, health, livelihoods, homes and human rights. Cameron will speak about how climate change undermines the realization of human rights, how strengthening human rights can make people resilient in the face of climate risk, and what practical steps we can take to build low carbon, climate resilient and inclusive economies.
