Gund Fellow Dr. Asim Zia, is wrapping up his attendance at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 18th Conference of Parties (COP) in Doha, Qatar. His blog “A View from Doha: The Time to Tackle Climate Change is Now” is featured on NPR’s website:

In their blog, Asim and Stuart Kauffman discuss the developments in Doha and the overarching concern that failure to agree to a binding international agreement to limit emissions puts the world on a 4°C warming trajectory. They conclude with thoughts on policy and governance ideas that are necessary to avoid this trajectory.
