Trade, Environment and Climate Change Webinar - WCP Chair Cairo University, Egypt

In recent years, environmental issues gained a particular momentum with the increase in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, changes in atmospheric composition, destruction of biodiversity and scarcity of water and other natural resources. These developments are likely to exert a significant impact on human and natural systems and have many implications such as declining global snow and ice cover, rising sea levels, increasing frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as heat waves, heavy precipitation, and storms. Understanding and responding to climate change raises many social, economic and political challenges. Thus, on the occasion of Egypt’s organization of the Climate Change Conference - COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh from November 7th to 18th, 2022, the French section of the Faculty of Economics and Political Sciences (FEPS) at Cairo University in collaboration with the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne are pleased to organize the Eight Joint Research Workshop on “Environment and Sustainable Development”. This workshop provides a platform for approximately 40 economists (and professionals in related disciplines) from Egypt and France to discuss their recent research work. In addition, it offers a vehicle for networking among researchers from both universities. The organization of this research workshop follows a long-standing cooperation between the two universities, including the agreement of a double diploma (both at the undergraduate and the postgraduate levels) in economics that strengthen scientific links between the two institutions.
