Mitigating methane emissions: from science to innovative solutions, Paris
9 November 2015: 9 am - 6.30 pm
The Veolia Institute is organizing, in association with the Agence Française de Développement and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, an international conference on innovative solutions to reduce methane emissions. Participants will exchange scientific knowledge, explore available mitigation options in the major emitting sectors—agriculture, oil and gas and waste—and discuss economic and financial mechanisms that would facilitate the development of these solutions for meeting the climate challenge. This event will take place on November 9, 2015, at the Economic, Social and Environmental Council (ESEC) in Paris. The Veolia Institute and its partners intend to contribute to the forthcoming COP21 by recommending concrete solutions that can be implemented in the short term to combat climate change. This conference has the institutional support of the French government illustrated by the official "COP21" label.
