Organizer: Germanwatch e.V.
Recent scientific findings, as summarized in the latest assessment report of IPCC Working Group II, shows that uncurbed climate change is likely to have disruptive impacts on food production, population pressure and development potentials of future generations. The conference will highlight these consequences for development(the problem). It will consider existing and emerging examples of action on the ground that promote development while adapting to climate change and reducing emissions (the practice). Furthermore, it will discuss the policy frameworks needed to scale up these practices and set the world on a pathway to low-carbon climate-resilient development (the policy). At the outset of the annual UNFCC climate meeting in Bonn, the event provides experts from academia, civil society and decision makers with a space for discussion, exchange and strategizing. A particular focus will be put on how the development and environment community can most effectively use the major political opportunities in 2014 and 2015.
The conference will be held in english language.
