I plan to use this site mainly to share some thoughts on global climate policy – although I may sometimes stray into other topics.
For those who don’t already know me, I have spent many years working on international climate issues, mostly for the French government. During that time I have been one of the European Union’s lead negotiators in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, part of the French presidency of COP21 in 2015 that oversaw the adoption of the Paris Agreement, and in 2018 and 2019 Chair of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice of the UNFCCC.
Everything I publish here reflects my personal opinions and in no way that of the organisations for which I work or have worked over the years. I shall mainly write in English, occasionally in French.
