The Paris Climate summit (COP21) is less than two months away, and expectations on the global agreement are rapidly taking shape. The countries most existentially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change should be at the centre of global attention, but risk being sidelined due to lack of political and economic clout.

Climate Analytics works closely with Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and is holding an evening event focusing on the perspective and priorities of the most vulnerable countries.Presentations will examine the latest climate science and provide a thorough analysis of what’s on the table before the Paris COP.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • The 1.5°C goal in Paris and the ADP agreement
  • INDC ambition, the ADP agreement & meeting the 2°C goal
  • Climate finance in the ADP agreement & GCF
  • Overview of ADP agreement
  • State of play leading into Paris

Input to the discussion will be provided by Bill Hare (CEO,Climate Analytics) and other experts. Sandra Freitas (Director of Climate Analytics Togo office) will highlight the perspective of the Least Developed Countries (LDC). Leon Charles (one of the lead Caribbean negotiators in the UNFCCC process) will outline views of the one of the Small Island Developing States (SIDS).

The event will be held on 11 November, 6:00 – 8:30pm at Tagungswerk, Lindenstraße 85, 10969 Berlin
