Climate & Sustainability Project (CASP)

2014 to 2015

The UN Millennium Development Goals expired in 2015. These were replaced by a set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which shape the post-2015 agenda.  Also in 2015, the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change met in Paris to agree the future arrangements for the post-2020 climate change regime. It is against this background that the CASP project mapped the interactions of the sustainability and climate change regimes within the aforementioned negotiations.

As part of the 2014 to 2015 CASP, an interactive workshop took place on Friday 5 June 2015 aimed at discussing the mutual supportiveness of sustainable development and climate change in the context of the historical negotiations taking place in 2015. Leading experts presented the state of the Sustainable Development Goals and international climate change negotiations. Participants engaged in discussions aiming at producing a policy-relevant report on the topic of the workshop. ´╗┐The key note speakers at the 2014-2015 CASP Workshop included Prof Jolene Lin of the University of Hong Kong and Prof Stefania Negri of the University of Salerno.
