Programme Description

The impacts of climate change are preoccupying citizens and policy-makers across the globe. Since climate change became a subject of international concern in the early 1990s, many actions have been undertaken. However, new evidence suggests that they are not sufficient to keep the increase in global average temperature well below 2% compared to pre-industrial levels. Countries around the world need to step up to take action.

By focusing on the European approach to climate change policies and governance, this course is designed to share and compare some key experiences while also enabling collaborative discussion around possible paths for the future. Ideal for policy-makers and practitioners working on the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) of the Paris Agreement, the curriculum includes a full introduction to the instruments and policies that have been developed within the European Union. It provides insights and reflections on transnational climate cooperation, negotiations, and action at the international level.
