Where

Martti Ahtisaari Peace Hall, Palazzo Buontalenti

Session as part of the EUI Climate Week 2024.

The recent geopolitical developments shed a new light on the transatlantic relationship and more generally, the position of Europe towards emerging economies and other OECD countries. North America has always played a critical role in Europe's energy and critical raw materials security. This has implications on the transatlantic relationship on trade, but also on Europe's international climate leadership and industrial decarbonisation strategies, notably considering the US-China rivalry. Moreover, Europe's re-orientation away from Russia and towards more diversification in its trade relations creates new opportunities for emerging economies. Do these changes also open new opportunities for cooperation on climate action?
