At the end of 2015, the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) will be held in Le Bourget, near Paris. Delegates from all over the world will meet at this major event to reach a crucial agreement on climate change. At the helm of the 2015 Paris Climate Conference is Laurence Tubiana, who has been appointed France’s Special Representative and is a world-renowned climate specialist.

Laurence Tubiana’s office is surrounded by those of her colleagues seconded from various French government departments: the ministries of foreign affairs, the economy, and of course, ecology and sustainable development. A large number and wide range of people have been mobilized. France must not only ensure that the conference runs smoothly and welcome the numerous delegates, but also facilitate negotiations between the partner countries to finalize an ambitious and binding agreement to keep global warming below 2°C.

Since the industrial revolution, human activities have caused the earth’s temperature to rise much more rapidly than nature’s capacity to adapt. The consequences are far-reaching: severe weather events are increasingly frequent, ecosystems and biodiversity are under threat and the number of people displaced by climate change continues to rise, not to mention the resulting economic and financial risks.
