The scientific conference “Our Common Future under Climate Change” (CFCC15) covered the full landscape of scientific knowledge on climate change. The largest international science conference before COP21, with close to 2,000 participants from almost 100 countries, CFCC15 explored current understanding of all dimensions of the climate change challenge plus the full range of mitigation and adaptation options that can lead to sustainable, equitable solutions across all nations and regions. This conference represented a historic opportunity to deliver a clear message to COP21 which will be held in Paris in December 2015.
