Dear readers,

A successful and eventful year comes to an end. Time to look back on an inspiring time. With the 24th Conference of the Parties (COP24) ending, two exciting weeks of negotiation, debate and inspiration are behind us. The conference took place from the 2nd to 15th of December under the presidency of Poland. Same as every year, the researchers of the Wuppertal Institute attended the conference and have now summarised the key outcomes of the negotiations. Their initial findings show that while COP24 in Katowice prepared the technical framework for climate action and thus marks a significant step forward, the mitigation ambitions of most major emitting countries still fall far short of what would be necessary.

Numerous side events were held by Wuppertal Institute's experts in parallel to the official negotiations at COP24. Amongst them was the Silesia Climate Lounge, which was organised by the Wuppertal Institute together with the State of North Rhine-Westphalia and the EnergyAgency.NRW.
At three specialist events, representatives of cities, regions and research institutions together with their partner regions of the so-called "Weimar Triangle" – Hauts-de-France (France) and the Province of Silesia (Poland) – intensively discussed positive examples of local climate protection, economic development and the contribution of the industry to achieving the Paris climate targets. The Wuppertal Institute organised a series of side events at COP24 to present its research projects and findings on site and to engage in discussions with delegates and practise partners.

By the way: In January, the scientists of the Wuppertal Institute will release an in-depth analysis of outcomes of COP24. The report will take a close look at the various issues addressed at the conference and at other related topics. Stay tuned: #MakingParisPossible!

After this exiting time we wish all readers Happy Holidays and a great New Year!
Christin Hasken & Anna Riesenweber
