When: 14:00 – 16:00 BST, September 15, 2020

The International Conference on Fossil Fuel Supply and Climate Policy explores the many opportunities for, and challenges of, policies that aim to explicitly limit fossil fuel production, in recognition that many countries rely on fossil fuel extraction and trade for their energy security, economic development, and political influence.

A short virtual forum was held on September 15th 2020, in lieu of the planned conference, which has been rescheduled to 2021. This forum provided a taste of the issues that will be discussed in more detail at the 2021 conference, and explored some of the current issues that have altered the energy landscape in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
