The UN Climate Change Conference–or COP21–recently concluded in Paris. As this article articulates, two Fordham IPED students–Elizabeth Shaw and Joshua Voges–and IPED Director Dr. Henry Schwalbenberg were involved in the U.N. Development Programme’s Equator Initiative. The Equator Initiative hosted dialogues and an award ceremony while the climate negotiations occurred nearby.
Shaw and Voges have been interning with UNDP’s Equator Initiative since they began their graduate studies in 2014. You can learn more about the “Community Dialogues” that took place in Paris during COP21 below.
