IMG_0353.JPGIf you missed the April 28th seminar “Moving on From Paris: Implementation Lessons from Social Science,” a video of the webcast is now available.

The seminar explored the benefits and risks of the voluntary bottom-up approach crafted at the 2015 Paris climate summit, in which 196 countries pledged individual Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) to meet global mean temperature targets by 2100.  In contrast to past international climate efforts, INDC pledges were completely voluntary and represent a new, bottom-up approach to climate agreements.

The seminar also examined how behavioral and societal responses have or have not been included in the modeling of temperature targets, with an emphasize on potential insights from the behavioral and social sciences, including how multiple levels of organization-institutions, communities, and individual households-might differentially contribute to the successful implementation of INDCs
