To Policy Makers

Climate Change is nowadays at the top of political agendas and it is a fundamental part of our work to contribute to the design of related policies, as well as to facilitate, through science, their application in a regulatory framework, consistent with the protection of the planet. Our involvement in the most relevant organizations, such as IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), IPBES (Intergovernmental Science- Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) or the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) is strategic for us.

The Policy Involvement,shows our ability to play an active role among the most authoritative actors in the field of climate change and climate policy. Such involvement is also a sign of international recognition, and a demonstration of our capacity to build relevant links and connections, addressing policy-makers at the highest levels.

BC3´s active role at COPs

One of our relevant contributions to the EU policy making process is taking part in the UNFCCC Side Events. These were established as a platform for observer organizations to highlight diverse climate change issues at UNFCCC conferences, and are a vital component of the UNFCCC sessions, as they provide opportunities for information dissemination, capacity building, policy discussions and a way to legitimize global governance.
BC3 is recognized by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as a Non-Governmental Organization and we have contributed to several side events at the Conferences of the Parties jointly with other leading Climate Change scientific and policy institutions.

BC3 has been playing an active role in these COPS.
