Climate change has become a major threat to sustainable development and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda in all regions of the world. Especially in developing and emerging countries, it endangers the livelihoods of the poorest and increases social inequalities. Climate-related losses and damages are already a reality. With global warming of more than 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, climate change threatens to become an unmanageable risk.
Accelerating comprehensive and profound transformation processes to mitigate global warming (climate change mitigation) and to respond to the unavoidable consequences of climate change in development policy (climate change adaptation) are fundamental prerequisites for sustainable development, the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and safeguarding development successes already achieved.
With Klimalog the German Institute of Development and Sustainability (IDOS) promotes the knowledge-based and action-oriented exchange of decision-makers and opinion leaders from science, politics and civil society on the most important substantive focal points of future global climate policy and the design of international cooperation with developing and emerging countries. In parallel, IDOS is researching regulatory measures to decouple the global economy from fossil fuels (decarbonisation) and to respond to the consequences of climate change (climate resilience). Issues of distribution and equity, interactions between various measures and the feasibility of implementation at different governance levels as well as in the context of international climate and development policy are the focus.
Let’s work together!
