CISD students provide input to UNFCCC process
29 Feb 2012
On 8 February 2012, students on CISD's MSc in Global Energy and Climate Policy participated in a one-day expert workshop organised by Responding to Climate Change (RTCC). Following a call from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the workshop set out to determine how climate negotiations can achieve more ambitious outcomes.
Discussion centred on three key questions:
1. How can we mobilise capital from the public/private sector?
2. Should we recognise and reward efforts at national level?
3. Is it time to raise adaptation levels, and if so, how?
The workshop's output, a document outlining options and ways to increase the level of ambition, was submitted to the UNFCCC's Secretariat on 24 February.
Read a summary of the workshop's discussions and recommendations by Ed King (Editor of RTCC and CISD Alumnus).
RTCC is a leading NGO and media platform in the climate change field and serves as an official observer organisation to the UNFCCC. Students worked with partners from RTCC, PwC and Camco.
