BC3-UPV/EHU Summer School 2016: “Climate Change Challenges after Paris agreement”

July 11, 2016 @ 8:00 am - July 13, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

Directors: Dr. Ibon Galarraga (BC3, Basque Centre for Climate Change) and Dr. Marta Escapa (University of the Basque Country).

The objective of the summer school is to offer an updated and recent view of the ongoing trends in Climate Change research in an annual basis. The BC3 Summer School is organized in collaboration with the University of the Basque Country and is a high quality and excellent summer course gathering leading experts in the field and students from top universities and research centres worldwide.

This seventh edition of the Summer School will continue with the multidisciplinary approach and will focus on the Climate Summit results in Paris.

The structure of the school will follow the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change) general meetings, with two sessions devoted to the subjects of the three IPCC Working Groups: climate science, adaptation and impact and mitigations of climate change.

One of the sessions will be focused on understanding the political process that lead us to the COP 21 in Paris (2015) and the resulting agreement.

The so-called Paris Agreement signed on December 12th can be seen as the culmination of more than two decades of international attempts under the United Nations to forge collective action on climate change. There is widespread consensus that the Agreement has been a diplomatic success. The Paris Agreement provides a solid foundation for substantial progress on climate change. Even if the limits that current Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) place on future greenhouse gas emissions are too weak to ensure that the agreed 2ºC limit on warming will not be breached, these national pledges may form the basis of a virtuous circle of ambition. Different speakers will try to cover all the current key issues in climate change such as: artic sea ice, ocean circulation, see level rise, impacts on water, food and health, mitigation options, climate policy and economic instruments.

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

PhD students and postdoctoral participants will have the opportunity to present their work in a specific poster session and get feedback from the faculty.
