Africa and Europe Combatting Climate Change Towards a Common Agenda in 2015

Africa and Europe Combatting Climate Change Towards a Common Agenda in 2015

Climate change is arguably the worst threat to human development, ever. According to the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change, the global temperature will increase by 3 degrees per decade this century under a business-as-usual scenario. The year 2015 can be a pivotal moment in history. During the Paris 21st Conference of the Parties (COP), to be held in December 2015, a new global and legally binding agreement on climate change may be signed by 195 developed and developing countries. The Lima Conference which ends this week, is paving the way towards a common treaty, acceptable by all parties. Climate change features high on European and African political agendas and they both officially recognise it as one of the major global threats, jeopardising security and development. Both Europe and Africa have the political will to cooperate in global fora and and jointly tackle climate change, as was stated officially during the 2014 EU-Africa Summit in Brussels.The core questions addressed in this latest ECDPM Discussion Paper is: i) What have we learned from decades of global climate debates? ii) Which role have Europe and Africa played in the climate domain? iii) What is the concrete potential for Europe and Africa to jointly tackle climate change?In this interview, ECDPM’s Hanne Knaepen explains more.
