1.5 Degrees: Meeting the challenges of the Paris Agreement
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE | 20-22 September 2016 | Organised by the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford

The ambition of the 2015 Paris Agreement of the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change caught the world by surprise.

The 1.5 degrees conference brought together researchers, policy makers, businesses and members of civil society to understand the impacts of warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and assess the feasibility of meeting the challenges in the Paris Climate Agreement. In September 2016, over 220 delegates from around the world reviewed the arguments behind the 1.5 degrees goal and sought to understand how it is to be interpreted. They explored options for how a 1.5 degrees target could be achieved and evaluated the possible consequences of the goal from a wide range of perspectives.
