Abstract:

Climate change has been the source of immense challenges for ethical, economic or political analysts. We are aware of the scale of the action required to be taken and the areas in which that action is needed namely efficient energy use, low carbon technologies or deforestation. We have an idea of which technologies need to be developed. We understand the basic economic policy incentives in favour of reducing emissions, stopping deforestation and promoting more sensible use of our natural environment and its resources. The main challenge today is to obtain political adherence to actually accomplishing these changes. The Chair in Sustainable Development - Environment, Energy and Society is supported by TOTAL. Le changement climatique est source d'immenses défis pour toute analyse éthique, économique et politique. Nous connaissons l'ampleur de l'action requise et les domaines dans lesquels il faut agir : efficacité énergétique, technologies sobres en carbone, déforestation. Nous avons une idée des technologies à développer. Nous comprenons bien les politiques économiques élémentaires qui incitent à la réduction des émissions, à l'arrêt de la déforestation et à la promotion d'un usage plus raisonné de notre environnement naturel et de ses ressources. Le défi consiste aujourd'hui à insuffler la volonté politique d'accomplir tous ces changements. La chaire internationale de Développement durable - Environnement, Énergie et Société reçoit le soutien de TOTAL.
