  • Overview

    In collaboration with The Stanley Foundation, this project aimed to strengthen the Research-Policy interface in the international climate negotiations and answer the need to bring some neutral, fact-based research and analysis into the negotiations.

    For that reason the French COP Presidency supported a research-based conference Our Common Future under Climate Change to improve the prospects for an effective deal on climate change at the Paris COP.

    Climate Strategies, in partnership with The Stanley Foundation established a research-policy interface by organising numerous engagement activities and injecting  a number of short analytical pieces into the Paris process including:

    • Global Climate Policy Conference 2015, New Delhi, India ( 29th April – 1st  May 2015)
    • Engagement with business and scientific community (May and July 2015)
    • Publication of report: ‘New Research for Effective Action at Paris and Beyond’

  • Objectives

    The main purposes of this Climate Strategies project in collaboration with are:

    • Identifying key questions behind the most likely roadblocks for the Paris COP;
    • Collecting, developing and communicating analysis of the main realistic options for answers;
    • Creating an “Exploratorium” for new ideas that could help with negotiations.
    • Defining the issues and what analysis tells us, in a clear document for negotiators and stakeholders
