Der Klimawandel ist für uns zu allererst eine Entwicklungsfrage. So erarbeiten wir Konzepte sowohl für die Unterstützung der Ärmsten bei der Anpassung als auch für den Aufbau klimaschonender Energie-Infrastruktur in Entwicklungsländern.

On the Sidelines of COP21 - The Global Landscapes Forum

Guest blog by Julia Dennis, December 2015

Over December 5-6 at the Palais du Congress, the 3rd Annual Global Landscapes Forum (#GLFCOP21) was the largest other meeting in Paris during COP21, attracting close to 3,500 participants, exhibitors and speakers from across disciplines and sectors. Instead of focusing on national climate commitments, the GLF explored alternative ‘un-siloed’ approaches to land use in a warming world, and perhaps equally important, how to finance them. >> mehr

Developing 2°C-Compatible Investment Criteria

This report studies the development of criteria for assessing the compatibility of financial investments with the international goal to limit global temperature increase to below 2°C above pre-industrial levels. The findings are intended as a starting point and a key input for a longer term process to develop consensus-based 2°C investing criteria. The focus here is placed on investments in projects and physical assets, in particular of development and climate finance organisations. >> mehr

Peruvian farmer sues German utility RWE over dangers related to glacial melting

For the first time, a company responsible for climate change faces legal charges in Europe

Today, the Peruvian farmer and mountain guide Saúl Luciano Lliuya is filing a lawsuit against the German utility RWE at the Regional Court in Essen, Germany. The reason: The energy company’s immense emissions threaten his family, his property as well as a large part of his home city of Huaraz.

G20 - a turning point?

Germanwatch, Climate Action Tracker and Climate Transparency Initiative publish G20 Report

The G20 make up two thirds of the world population, produce four fifth of the global economic output, and account for three quarters of global Greenhouse gas emissions. The average G20 per capita emissions are nearly 11 tons of CO2e. To keep global warming below 2°C, global per capita emissions need to be reduced to 1-3 tCO2e by 2050. The study "20 Climate Action – a turning point?" gives an overview on the current situation of the G20, as well as looking for trends and future plans. >> mehr

Progress on national climate action plans for the Paris conference: "Climate action? - It's better to join in than to be out!"

Blogpost by Rixa Schwarz, October 2015

At the United Nations Climate Conference in Lima in 2014, it was decided that all countries should submit their national climate action plans to the United Nations in the course of 2015. These so-called intended nationally determined contributions (INDCs) will be an important basis for the new global climate agreement to be concluded in Paris in December 2015. Shortly after the 1 October 2015 deadline for countries to submit their plans, the European Commission and the Government of Morocco convened the INDC Forum in Rabat from 12-13 October 2015. >> mehr
