A calendar of international conferences, workshops, seminars, and all kinds of event related to Climateurope activities and topics: Climate Services, Climate Observation, and Earth-System modeling
The 4th International Conference on Energy & Meteorology (ICEM) is a unique chance for the energy industry and the meteorological sector to connect, exchange knowledge, and work together. At the 4th ICEM, through targeted workshops, panel discussions with international experts, and brainstorming sessions, you will be able to plant the seeds for new business opportunities and interact with an international community of energy specialists, economists, scientists, and policymakers working at the thriving nexus of energy with weather and climate.
The UN Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) and the EU-funded CARISMA project on innovation for climate change mitigation jointly organise a summer school course on climate change mitigation. The course will take place from 14 through 18 August 2017 as part of the Radboud Summer School programme in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. The course is targeted at post-graduates, PhD students or junior professionals in public service working on the topic of climate change mitigation.
Climate change mitigation, i.e. human intervention to reduce greenhouse gas emissions or enhance sinks of greenhouse gases, is firmly on the international policy agenda since the Paris Agreement of December 2015. For meeting the Paris Agreement goals, an acceleration will be required of global development, deployment and diffusion of technologies and practices for mitigation. The summer school course will take a multidisciplinary perspective and discuss climate mitigation technologies, practices, costs and benefits as well as related policies and needed governance.
The course starts with an introduction on technology transfer for climate change mitigation: what are potential technology options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, what are their climate footprints, what are cost items to consider, how to enhance public acceptance, and what R&D activities exist (are needed) to accelerate development, deployment and diffusion of technology options?
As part of the course, an interactive workshop will be organised by the UN Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN), introducing students into technology transfer practice, with a specific focus on developing countries. Based on concrete examples, students will work in small groups on case studies about how to prioritise sectors and technologies for mitigation within different country contexts. The final part of the programme contains lectures on policies and governance for technologies for mitigation, including a key note lecture by a senior policy practitioner on technology transfer from an international climate policy and negotiation perspective.
The deadline for application for the summer school course is June 1, 2017 with an early-bird registration open till May 9, 2017
Unique Conferences Canada, the leading Canadian research conference organizer and the International Center for Research & Development, the premier conference organizer in Asia are proud to announce the Sixth International Conference on Climate Change Adaptation 2017 (CCA 2017) will be held on 16-17 September ,2017 at the Chestnut Conference Centre,University of Toronto,Canada.
CONNECT & RECONNECT
Climate Change Adaptation 2017 is an interactive platform to connect and reconnect colleagues around the world. You can meet participants from 2012, 2013, 2014,2015 and 2016 conferences as well as new participants in this conference. CCA 2017 conference is the premier knowledge building event in Canada.
BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS & COLLABORATE
Climate Change Adaptation is your place for building relationships with others who excel in Adaptation strategies. Learn about best practices, and establish network with future collaborators in the Climate Change domain.
Impacts World is the leading international conference covering the diversity and depth of climate-impacts research today. IW2017 follows on from the inaugural Impacts World 2013, held in Potsdam, Germany, which brought together impacts researchers and stakeholders from across the spectrum of impacted sectors, initiating an era of truly integrated cross-sectoral climate-impacts research.
Impacts World showcases not only the very latest in our scientific understanding impacts of climate change, placing a particular focus on the most pertinent and pressing political questions of the day, but shines a spotlight on the challenges that lie ahead for this research community, and offers ample time for in-depth discussions and dedicated working groups. In 2017, the confrence will be dedicated to counting the true costs of climate change, by considering four key challenges for aggregating and quantifying climate-change risks and impacts.
There is no participant fee for Impacts World 2017.
The call for workshops is now open. Submit your proposal by 22 March, 2017.
