Enhancing climate policy through co-creation

First PARIS REINFORCE Stakeholder Council Dialogue

November 21, 2019, 8:30 am Bruegel, Rue de la Charité 33, 1210 Brussels Invitation-only | Off the Record Topic: Energy & Climate

PARIS REINFORCE is a three-year, Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission. The project has the aim of enhancing climate policymaking particularly with reference to a more efficient science-policy interface. In order to do so, PARIS REINFORCE can call upon the modelling capabilities of an ensemble of Integrated Assessment Models (IAMs) as well as other energy systems, sectoral and general equilibrium models.

The project seeks to actively involve stakeholders in multiple aspects of these modelling processes, from the formulation of relevant policy questions to the definition of modelling assumptions. The purpose of this meeting is to offer an introduction to the project (what it hopes to achieve, how it will look to do so) as well as to foster stakeholder-led discussions over the most relevant climate-economy areas for models to investigate.

This meeting will be the first of a series of stakeholder events to be held over the next three years.

Under swollen tides, Venice says more about our future than our past

While tides high enough to submerge Venice used to be rare, occurring every two to three decades, they have now become increasingly regular. Five of the ten highest tides in recorded history occurred over the last 20 years, with the most recent one having occurred just last year. Is this the new normal?

Four pillars to make or break the European Green Deal

The recipe for a successful European Green Deal is as simple as it is breath-taking: to intelligently promote deep decarbonisation by accompanying the economic and industrial transformation this necessarily implies, and by ensuring the social inclusiveness of the overall process.

Demystifying carbon border adjustment for Europe’s green deal

From carbon leakage to “green protectionism”, the European Green Deal envisioned by the incoming Commission has many critics. But some adjustments to the deal could make domestic manufacturers more carbon efficient while simultaneously encouraging foreign producers to become more environmentally friendly.

Deep Focus: What's slowing the Mercosur agreement?

The EU-Mercosur has been 20 years in the making, but a hostile trading environment, unpredictable government and growing environmental concerns are putting it in peril. Is the deal worth fighting for and can it be saved? And could it become a casualty Brazil's forest fires?

Policy Brief

Collective action in a fragmented world

International collective action is in search of a new paradigm. It cannot rely anymore on global binding rules supported by universal institutions. New forms of cooperation have emerged in a number of fields. Europe should equip itself to be an effective player in this new global game. This calls for internal governance reforms.

Opinion

Economic priorities for new EU leadership

Europe is no longer in crisis mode. However, it remains vulnerable; it is unprepared and it is procrastinating. Following European elections this May, new leaders are about to take their positions at the main European institutions for the next 5 years. They have the power in their hands to take action. But more importantly, they have the power to convene 28 states, which, if united, can play a significant global role. What are the urgent challenges that require collective European action?

Dousing the Sovereignty Wildfire

In time, the current spat between French President Emmanuel Macron and his Brazilian counterpart Jair Bolsonaro regarding the Amazon rainforest may become a mere footnote. But other rows between collective and national interests are sure to erupt, and the world needs to find a way to manage them.
