President Trump’s August 4th announcement to the United Nations that the United States “intends to exercise its right to withdraw” from the Paris climate agreement has received widespread attention from the press and a broad range of stakeholders. The United States’ position is likely to be a significant ongoing topic among international climate change negotiators. Hear from a panel of experts on what the President’s actions mean for international negotiations and climate law, how it has impacted investment, and how stakeholders such as nations, states, cities, NGOs and companies are responding through new alliances and their own individual leadership.
