COP26 and Beyond

November 18, 2021 • 2:00 – 3:00 pm EST

CSIS is pleased to host Jonathan Pershing, Deputy Special Envoy for Climate at the U.S. Department of State, alongside CSIS experts for a post-analysis conversation about the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26). Should the Glasgow Climate Pact be considered a success? What were the major takeaways from the conference? How will issues at the intersection of trade and climate policy, including a global carbon tax, play out? And, what role does China play in the negotiations of international climate commitments?

Please join us for introductory remarks from Joseph Majkut, CSIS Director of the Energy Security and Climate Change Program, and a keynote speech from Jonathan Pershing. We will have a subsequent panel discussion featuring Nikos Tsafos, CSIS Schlesinger Chair for Energy and Geopolitics, and Ilaria Mazzocco, CSIS Fellow with the Trustee Chair in Chinese Business and Economics. The conversation will be moderated by Bill Reinsch, CSIS Senior Adviser and Scholl Chair in International Business.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
