EU and UN Action on climate diplomacy – the Year Ahead

Wednesday 23rd January 2019

10:00 – 12:00

FEPS office, rue Montoyer 40, 1000 Brussels


Climate change and its effects are already proving to be a threat to international security. Extreme consequences are already affecting many people’s livelihoods and biodiversity on the planet.

With key multilateral processes being threatened by various international developments, climate diplomacy needs to be given an even stronger role within foreign and security policy. Therefore this workshop aims to look at how the EU can continue and strengthen its climate diplomacy potential in the current international climate.

Suggested questions to be addressed in this discussion:

– What are the environmental dimensions of EU foreign policy? How can they be reinforced?

– What are the recent and forthcoming policy developments in EU and UN climate diplomacy policy and action?

– What are the opportunities to scale-up more foreign policy action in relation to addressing climate change?

– What are the main expected challenges?

– What role can progressives play in forthcoming developments?

– What new opportunities are emerging for BDCD participating organisations to work together in the year ahead to help advance climate diplomacy policy and practice?

This is an invitation-only seminar however if you would like to attend please contact Charlotte.billingham@feps-europe.eu
