During the middle weekend of COP 23, the annual Development & Climate Days took place from 11-12 November 2017. The German Development Institute / Deutsche Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) was one of the host partners.

More than 300 policymakers, researchers and development practitioners attended the two-day event, which focused on 'Global ambition. Local action. Climate resilience for all'. This year’s D&C days aimed to influence the ‘Ambition Mechanism’ processes under the UNFCCC – particularly the Facilitative Dialogue and Global Stocktake – and to inform climate action on all levels. DIE´s researcher within the Klimalog Project co-organised various sessions, which looked at the twin challenges of eradicating extreme poverty while achieving zero emissions.

Background papers are available on each of the event’s main themes:

The dynamic format of the D&C Days encouraged dialogue on a range of issues that link policy, knowledge and practice. Read the Keymessages of the Development & Climate Days 2017 here.
