The 2015 international scientific conference ‘Our Common Future under Climate Change’ was held in Paris earlier this year under the umbrella of ICSU, Future Earth, UNESCO and major French research institutions, with the support of the French Government. It provided a large forum for the scientific community to come together ahead of the 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) of the UNFCCC. Building on the results of IPCC 5th Assessment Report (AR5), the conference addressed key issues concerning climate change in the broader context of global change. It offered an opportunity to discuss solutions for both mitigation and adaptation issues.
