Opportunity - Call for Submissions: Fossil Fuel Supply and Climate Policy Conference
Call for Submissions: Fossil Fuel Supply and Climate Policy Conference
Conference on Fossil Fuel Supply and Climate Policy
Call for Papers/Abstracts
The words “fossil fuels” appear nowhere in the landmark Paris Agreement on climate change of 2015. However, when the UN Secretary General announced, on the eve of the climate talks in 2019, that “We simply have to stop digging and drilling”, it became clear the discussion around fossil fuels and climate has shifted. The conflict between continued fossil fuel exploration and production and global climate goals is now on the international policy agenda. The International Conference on Fossil Fuel Supply and Climate Policy explores the many opportunities for, and challenges of, policies that aim to explicitly limit fossil fuel production, in recognition that many countries rely on fossil fuel extraction and trade for their energy security, economic development, and political influence.
