From 6 to 17 November, the 2017 Climate Change Conference (COP 23) takes place in Germany under the Fiji Presidency. Since many years, the DIE has been conducting research on key issues in the field of climate change, UN climate negotiations and their implications for international co-operation. DIE is involved in many of the formats during COP23 from 6 to 17 November 2017. Within our project “Klimalog – Research and Dialogue for a climate-smart and just transformation”, funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), DIE organises several side events in the visiting area of the COP23 (Bonn Zone). DIE is also the venue for the “Interconnections Zone” (Link). With more than 40 events and a thematic focus on the Paris Agreement and the Agenda 2030, DIE provides a base for transdisciplinary discussions between 6 and 17 November 2017. Further, DIE is one of the co-organisers of the Development & Climate Days, taking place on 11 and 12 November at the Kameha Grand Hotel in Bonn. On 4 to 5 November, DIE organised the international „Climate Action and Human Wellbeing at a Crossroads: Historical Transformation or Backlash?” calling for accelerated action to jointly implement the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Agreement.
