Wuppertal Institute Presence at COP25

Side events during the UN Climate Change Conference in Madrid

  • Events 02.12. - 13.12.2019
  • Location Madrid, Spain

The Wuppertal Institute undertakes research and develops models, strategies and instruments for transitions to a sustainable development at local, national and international level. The institute is organising a number of side events at COP25 to present its insights and stimulate discussions among negotiators and practitioners.

On the one hand, a number of side events will address issues to be negotiated in Katowice. The Wuppertal Institute is co-organising a side event with the University of Zurich, INFRAS and the Stockholm Environment Institute on how to ensure credibility of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement as a means to promote ambition in climate change mitigation. Another side event in co-operation with the ClimateWorks Foundation will discuss how to maximise the effectiveness of the Paris Agreement's Global Stocktake.

On the other hand, side events will discuss questions of how to move forward with achieving emission reductions and sustainable development on the ground. A particular focus lies on climate protection in industry and on pathways towards sustainable mobility.
