The FP7 project POLIMP facilitates a process to identify, for different policy and decision making levels, knowledge gaps about implications of possible directions of international climate policies. The project also covers these gaps with knowledge packages derived from a broad range of existing reports, research and climate policy decisions at, e.g., EU and UNFCCC levels. With these information packages, climate policy associated stakeholders will be better able to extract key policy conclusions. Through series of workshops these packages communicated to stakeholders.
In addition, POLIMP provides an overall, online platform for information exchange of a wider list of contemporary and future climate policy initiatives. Please click below to access our online knowledge platform.
Knowledge gaps are being identified for a range of priority issues related to climate policy making in consultation with stakeholders, but as a starting point for discussion the following three (categories of) issues are suggested by the POLIMP partners:
• What would different possible international climate policy scenarios entail for EU society, business, Member States and EU as a whole, in terms of economic, social, and environmental impacts looking especially at likely reactions and resulting political acceptability for different groups such as those impacted by job losses and reductions in welfare as well as potential gains?
• How can EU stakeholders deliberate in an evidence based manner about the pros and cons of these different scenarios?
• How can EU and EU stakeholders learn from design and implementation of climate policies worldwide as well as share the experience the EU has gained in designing and implementing climate friendly actions?
Climate Strategies’ role in the consortium is to provide sound expert knowledge through its large network of members and affiliated institutions. We provide input into the analysis and output of the project’s research. We are involved in the project’s engagement activities functioning as broker between the team and the stakeholder arena.
Consortium members: JIN, Ecologic, University of Graz, Climate Strategies, UPRC, University of Zurich, IBS, CEPS.
