The Association of Women in International Trade (WIIT) invites you to an off-the-record brown bag lunch.

Following the United States’ presidential election and COP 22 to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), what are the outlooks for energy policy and regulatory changes going forward in the United States and beyond? While President-elect Trump vowed to target existing U.S. climate programs and contributions to overseas climate funding on the campaign trail, what possible changes can we expect, how might the private sector plan to respond, and how does this fit with international efforts to tackle climate change?
