Our Common Future under Climate Change [fr]

Outcome Statement by CFCC15 Scientific Committee, chaired by Chris Field


Date: Held from the 6th to the 10th of July 2015

Organisers: UNESCO, Future Earth and the International Council for Science.

The scientific conference “Our Common Future under Climate Change” (CFCC15) covered the full landscape of scientific knowledge on climate change.

The largest international science conference before the Paris COP21, involved more than 2,000 participants from almost 100 countries.

The CFCC15 explored current understanding of all dimensions of the climate change challenge in addition of the full range of mitigation and adaptation options that can lead to sustainable, equitable solutions across all nations and regions.

The main objective of the COP21, to be held in December 2015, is to produce a cooperation framework among governments to increase individual and collective ambitions for addressing the challenge of climate change. The new climate governance regime is intended to strengthen confidence, support implementation, maximize benefits of international cooperation and increase awareness about climate change issues. For science, the opportunity is to enable transition pathways to sustainable, resilient economies and societies.

Held from the 7th to the 10th of July at the headquarters of UNESCO and in the « Pierre et Marie Curie » University in Paris, the CFCC15 conference aimed to advance the dialogue on scientific solutions to climate change. It also targeted to strengthen the dialogue between science and society through 78 parallel events organized around the world between the 1st of June and the 15th of July, by many artists, companies, media, NGOs, politicians, government agencies, international organizations and scientists.
