Tras el informe especial del Panel Intergubernamental para el Cambio Climático de Naciones Unidas (IPCC) alertando de los efectos del calentamiento global y la necesidad urgente de limitar el aumento de la temperatura media del planeta a 1,5C, expertos de algunos de los principales centros europeos de investigación analizarán las claves científicas y políticas para alcanzar este objetivo en la 10ª edición de la Escuela de Verano sobre Cambio Climático que coorganizan BC3 y la Universidad del País Vasco
This year we run the 10th edition of the BC3-UPV/EHU Summer School on Climate Change that started in July 2010, when the international community was in the search of a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol, following a non-binding Copenhagen Accord put forth in 2009. Since then, the Summer School has covered a wide range of topics from an interdisciplinary perspective and has closely followed the international negotiations on climate change. Two years ago, the Summer School focused on the factors behind the paradigm shift in international policymaking, which eventually led to the Paris Agreement. Then, the US government’s decision to back out the agreement led to a “climate of uncertainty” that constituted the main topic discussed in last year’s edition.
Climate change and biodiversity conservation are the two great environmental challenges of our age. One of the greatest social challenges is equity, which, in addition, is one of the basic pillars of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Previous studies have analysed the relations between climate change and biodiversity, showing a positive correlation between both variables.
