COP21 Episode 1: COP21 101

Climate change is expected to cost the world trillions of dollars in economic damage aside from the irreparable environmental impact some communities are facing even now. Considering the urgency, are our world leaders doing enough in the fight against climate change? On the 30th of November, COP21, also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, will gather global stakeholders to what will be one of the largest climate conferences ever organised.

In the first episode of this four part series, we speak to Dr. Matthew Ashfold, atmospheric scientist at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, Pierre Randane, expert in energy policy and former president of ADEME, Hilary Chiew from the Third World Network and Lavanya Rama Iyer, Head of Policy and Climate Change at WWF to find out what the talks are about, the issues being addressed and the science behind it all.
