Facing the challenges of climate change with Marie-Hélène Aubert


The French-American Foundation welcomed Marie-Hélène Aubert on Wednesday, January 29, who has worked closely with French President François Hollande on environmental issues since his election in 2012. In addition to exploring the possibilities for cooperation between France and the United States in addressing climate and the environment, Ms. Aubert focused specifically on the prospects and stakes of the anticipated Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, to be hosted in Paris in 2015. 

Following her stay in New York, Ms. Aubert continued onto Washington, D.C., where she served as closing keynote speaker at the National Council for Science and the Environment's "Building Climate Solutions," the 14th National Conference and Global Forum on Science, Policy, and the Environment to be held January 28-30.
