Held in the Victor Hugo hall at the French National Assembly, other participants included Laurent Fabius, minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, vice-chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Ian Goldin, director of the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford, Qi Ye, director of the Brookings-Tsinghua Center for Public Policy in Beijing, and Marie-Helene Aubert, senior policy advisor to the French President for International Environmental and Climate Change Negotiations.
