Berlin

The headquarters of our organisation are located in Berlin, with over 40 employees. Most of our science and policy staff are based here and enjoy close working relationships with many European universities and institutes on joint projects. A number of our scientists maintain an affiliation with one of the world’s premier climate science institutes, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), which enables co-development of climate models and collaboration on projects and peer-reviewed publications. Our Berlin office is also the hub for our EU climate policy work, including two major Horizon2020 projects – RIPPLES and MAGIC, and work related to coal phase out.

Taking advantage of long-standing relationships with major funders, like the German Federal Environment Ministry, key agencies, and partner institutions, the bulk of project development and management, as well as finance and administration are also carried out here.

As Berlin is home to many institutes and civil organisations working on climate, energy and sustainable development, both on the EU and international level, we hold public events to advance discussions on such diverse topics as coal phase-out in the EU, priorities of climate-vulnerable countries in the international negotiations and the science around the 1.5°C limit in the Paris Agreement.

Where are we and where do we want to go - Impacts avoided by limiting warming to 1.5°C

The recent IPCC report provides comprehensive evidence of climate change impacts today and how they will increase with 1.5°C warming and even more with 2°C. The project HAPPI-DE has contributed significantly to the science base underlying the 1.5°C special report. This event will showcase the project's main findings in the context of the report and discuss its significance for the upcoming climate conference COP24 and the Talanoa Dialogue with experts from government and civil society.

Toward rapid decarbonisation: key steps to get on the 1.5°C pathway

This event will focus on what is needed for rapid decarbonisation for the world to get onto a 1.5°C pathway, in line with the Paris Agreement. Our analysts will present the benefits of the 1.5°C limit, demonstrate the latest positive technological and political developments and outline concrete steps for rapid decarbonisation. It will also discuss the key political moments that provide opportunities to move climate action forward.

Report launch: A stress test for coal in Europe under the Paris Agreement

We're launching a new report that elaborates a strategy for phasing-out coal in the European Union and its member states and provides a science based shut-down schedule of coal power plants in line with the Paris Agreement long-term temperature goal. Join us for a discussion with report authors and European political decision makers and diverse civil society actors.

Projects Berlin

Central & Eastern Europe Climate Policy Frontiers

This project aims to facilitate knowledge exchange and the promotion of best practices for Paris Agreement-compatible climate action in the transport and building sectors in Central and Eastern Europe, focusing on Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.

MAGIC - Moving towards Adaptive Governance in Complexity: Informing Nexus Security

This research project is a collaboration between nine European institutions. It takes a fresh look at how the EU 2020 Strategy can achieve its goal of smart, sustainable and inclusive economic growth, particularly undertaking novel complexity approaches to the integration of policies involving the nexus between water, food, energy, land use and climate change.

RIPPLES

COP21 Results and Implications for Pathways and Policies for Low Emissions European Societies
The Paris Agreement represents an important new strategic context for EU climate policy. Analysing the implications of this new context requires an interdisciplinary approach, combining analysis of the evolution of the international climate regime as well as of NDCs and their socio-economic implications.

EmBARK - Temporal Evolution of Barriers to Adaptation and their Relevance for Climate Related Loss and Damage

The EmBARK-project investigates time scales and possible trajectories of socio-economic transformation processes and analyse their relevance as potential barriers to adaptation to climate change. An improved understanding of the temporal dynamics of such barriers is key in developing a more realistic understanding of future climate impacts and for scientifically robust assessment of future climate related loss and damage.

ISIpedia

The ISIpedia project is an effort to bridge a gap between the modellers from the Inter-Sectoral Impact Model Intercomparison Project (ISIMIP) studying the global and regional impacts of climate change on natural and human systems, and stakeholders who may need this knowledge to identify appropriate policies. By creating channels of cooperation between modellers and stakeholders, ISIpedia aims at facilitating the co-production and knowledge transfer of climate impact information. The end-product of ISIpedia will be a user-friendly, freely accessible online encyclopaedia for consistent impacts projections across sectors.

SLICE

SLICE is investigating Short- and Long-Term Impacts of Climate Extremes and aims to develop a systematic understanding of the channels through which climate extremes impact socio-economic development all the way from the household to the macroeconomic level. This will help developing effective strategies for long-term economic development under climate change.
