BC3-EHU/UPV Summer School: “Climate risk and the future of international climate policy”

BC3-EHU/UPV Summer School: “Climate risk and the future of international climate policy”

4th-6th of July 2018

Bizkaia Aretoa – Bilbao

 

As in its previous editions, the structure of this year’s Summer School will approximately follow that of the General Meetings of IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change): three sessions focusing on broad themes roughly related to those of the three IPCC Working Groups. Accordingly, this year’s session themes are (1) climate science, (2) climate change impacts and adaptation, and (3) the role of energy in the mitigation of climate change.

In last year’s edition, the Summer School focused on the factors behind the paradigm shift in international policymaking, which eventually lead to the Paris Agreement. Since then, however, many things have happened. The Paris Agreement entered into force on 04 November 2016, but the US government has already announced its intention to back out of the agreement. What role other countries may play under these circumstances (also leaving the agreement or instead increasing ambition of contributions)? Their reactions will determine the future of the UN Climate process. Meanwhile, time is running out to tackle climate change, with rising global temperatures, ocean acidification, sea-level rise, melting of Arctic sea ice, recurrent extreme events, etc., all causing visible impacts on sensitive issues like water and food security, health, migration, mitigation options, climate policies and the energetic transition to a low-carbon future. The speakers of the Summer School 2018 will try to cover these and other related key issues in climate change, and assess their impacts and consequences on regional and global levels.

The school is open to PhD Students, postdoctoral fellows and other researchers, as well as stakeholders and policymakers interested in acquiring a deep understanding of climate change and the policies designed to cope with it.
