Visit of French Ambassador
The 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) will take place in Paris in December this year. An effective and equitable international agreement will be critical for reducing greenhouse gas emissions to limit global temperature rise to 2 degree Celsius and for supporting adaptation to climate impacts. France, as the host and chair of the COP21 is committed to the role of an impartial facilitator for forging an ambitious agreement at COP 21.
In this context, Ambassador of France, H.E. Mr. François Richier addressed several issues related to the global fight against climate change and the role of France as chair of the upcoming conference in December. This was followed by a discussion on alternate energy sources, and how important technology transfer and cooperation between countries is to achieving a cleaner world, and dropping CO2 emission levels. A question and answer session soon followed with thoughts on government intervention, nuclear energy as a resource, and the role of diplomacy in climate change were all debated and discussed.
The Ambassador also interacted with the Director, Prof. Sasikumar and key officials of BITS Pilani, Goa Campus. He was open to the idea of academic and research collaboration between India and Franceand said that presently about 3150 Indian students are in France while 1600 French students are in India.
