Meet the WISIONS Team in Bonn and Berlin!

The WISIONS team will participate in the “Bonn Climate Change Conference” (16th to 26th May 2016 in Bonn, Germany) and the “Berlin Conference on Global Environmental Change” (23rd to 24th May in Berlin, Germany).

The 2016 UNFCCC climate change conference in Bonn brings together representatives of all member countries of the UNFCCC for specific meetings on implementation and other business related to climate change agreements. This year’s conference will include the forty-fourth session of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation and Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice as well as the first session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on the Paris Agreement. Alongside the conference, many organisations organise side events intended to foster discussion and provide advice to policymakers attending the event. A list of the scheduled sessions is available here.

The 2016 Berlin Conference on Transformative Global Climate Governance “après Paris” is the 12th conference in the well established series of European Conferences on the Human Dimensions of Global Environmental Change. The 2016 Berlin Conference was jointly initiated by the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU) at Freie Universität Berlin in the context of DIE’s Klimalog project.

This year’s edition discusses topics like how the Paris Agreement will affect the institutional landscape of global climate governance and which new priorities have emerged in the negotiation of the Paris Agreement and related decisions. The conference programme is available here.
