Opportunity - Call for Papers: ‘World Symposium on Climate Change Policies: Science and Technology in Support of Policy-Making in Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation’, Manchester, UK 19 – 20 September 2023
- Climate Change
- United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland
The Symposium will include presentations from representatives from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Working Groups I, II, and III, as well as from the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Department of Education. Together, the speakers from these organizations will provide an overview of the state of the art and outline future trends.
Climate change policies are important tools in supporting legislative and executive approaches to promote conditions for assertive action to advance the climate agenda. Sound policies are essential for the implementation of climate change mitigation and adaptation strategies. Although climate change policies are a vital component for the implementation of climate action, including the implementation of SDG13, there is a perceived need to have in-depth discussions on how best they may be designed and implemented.
Aims of the event
The main aim of the Symposium is to provide a platform for discussions on the role of science and technology in support of policymaking on climate change. In addition, the Symposium aims to identify, document and disseminate ideas, experiences, and visions from scientists, decision-makers, educators, members of non-governmental organizations, and citizens, on how science and technology may contribute towards supporting the design and implementation of climate change policies, which is important in pursuing sustainable future scenarios. The outcome of the discussions will be summarised, and fed in the preparations for COP 28, to be held in Dubai on 30 November – 12 December 2023.
The Symposium will gather 100 or so delegates, who specialize in aspects of policymaking and/or policy implementation on climate change. It will be structured around plenary presentations and parallel sessions.
The Symposium will be of special interest to experts working in the science-technology nexus and policymaking on matters related to climate change. It will also be interesting to educators and practitioners. To maximize the impact of the event, it will gather climate scientists generating climate data and working on mitigation and adaptation strategies on the one hand, and organizations working in policy design and policy implementation on the other. These two groups do not often come together. No matter if delegates come from academia, government agencies, or think thanks, the Symposium will provide them with an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas and information.
