The future of EU climate and sustainable energy diplomacy

Publication launch and debate

 Wednesday 19th October 2016

18.00 to 20.00,

At the Dickson Poon School of Law, King’s College London,

Somerset House East Wing, Strand, London

Speakers:

Stephen Minas TLI and project coordinator Presentation of the publication findings

Nick Mabey, Chief Executive of E3G climate think tank

Francesca Manchi, Political Officer, European Commission Representation in the UK 

Thomas Spencer, Programme Director of Climate, IDDRI

Welcome and chairing:

Prof Peer Zumbansen, TLI Director

Charlotte Billingham, Executive Advisor, FEPS

The debate is to launch the research findings on this topic, prior to the 22nd Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC.

The European Union has long played a leadership role in the global response to climate change and the related challenge of increasing access to sustainable energy for development. To maintain and extend this diplomatic asset, the EU faces challenges including the proliferation of multiple negotiating tracks and processes, the growing importance of non-EU sources of finance and technology, and the centrality of technology in global climate and sustainable energy governance. If the EU can respond to these developments with innovative diplomacy, it has an opportunity to augment its contribution to global progress on climate change and sustainable energy.
