January 29th – March 1st, 2016
We took the opportunity to participate in the Annual Conference of the German IPCC coordination unit in Nauen (near Berlin), „experiencing the science-policy interface“ – as mentioned in the opening statement. It was interesting to follow the discussion after the successful COP21 in Paris last december and to digest the consequences for science policies: what kind of science and knowledges do we need to implement the ambitious goals? What is now the role of the natural sciences when it’s actually about transition? What are the pitfalls and challenges? How do we look at the 1,5°C target from a natural or a social science perspective? What about the humanities? Exciting questions – also for CCP.
