Oels speaks at the Paris Climate Conference
The event is organized by three universities: Lund, Lancaster and Hamburg. Side events and exhibits were established as a platform for admitted observer organizations that have limited speaking opportunities in the formal negotiations, to engage with Parties and other participants for knowledge sharing, capacity building, networking and exploring actionable options for meeting the climate challenge.
