To Policy Makers

BC3 creates Climate Change Science focused on developing multidimensional broad range of policy solutions

BC3 creates climate science (multidisciplinary research) focused on developing multidimensional broad range of policy solutions(by integrating disciplinary approaches that address distinct biophysical, socioeconomic, and ethical dimensions) for the climate change, actively seeking to educate (training), advise relevant policy makers at both governmental and non-governmental levels.

Assessing the impact of the produced integrated (knowledge)  is a crucial issue for BC3.

Playing an active role directly addressing policy-makers at the highest possible level

Direct involvement of BC3 in the (International /National/Regional) policy making process is done mainly by means of taking part in public consultations , being involved in outstanding international events and discussion forums.

Play an active role among the most authoritative actors, directly addressing policy-makers at the highest possible level is one of the  objectives of the centre.

In this sense engagement with the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and with UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) is regarded as a proxy for assessing the impact of BC3 ´s contribution in the most authoritative scientific and policy bodies dealing with Climate Change.

BC3´s active role at COPs

The COP is the supreme decision-making body of the Convention. All States that are Parties to the Convention are represented at the COP, at which they review the implementation of the Convention and any other legal instruments that the COP adopts and take decisions necessary to promote the effective implementation of the Convention, including institutional and administrative arrangements.

A key task for the COP is to review the national communications and emission inventories submitted by Parties. Based on this information, the COP assesses the effects of the measures taken by Parties and the progress made in achieving the ultimate objective of the Convention.

The COP meets every year, unless the Parties decide otherwise. The first COP meeting was held in Berlin, Germany in March, 1995 and the last at Paris, in December 2015.

BC3 has been playing an active role in these COPS.
