Description

As significant fossil fuel reserves must remain underground, there is growing interest in how climate policy could limit the supply of fossil fuels in addition to reducing demand. Key experts  discuss how supply side policy can be more consistent with long-term climate and sustainability goals.

This event is in the EU Pavilion which is located in the Blue Zone, where an official UNFCCC pass is required to attend.
