23 March, 2010 / Brussels, Belgium

The event will consider the practical consequences of the Copenhagen outcome and the ongoing international politics of climate change from an EU perspective.

Specific objectives include:
• Brief review of what came out of Copenhagen, status update on events in early 2010 and a look forward to the process through to COP16 in Mexico, with a focus on the politics of the process and the different options for moving ahead
• Understand the potential role that the EU can play in moving the process forward and whether/how its role needs to change give recent external and internal changes in policy processes
• Identify the practical implications for EU external relations policy, particularly in relation to development cooperation processes

At the session, CROP Scientific Director Asuncion St. Clair will hold the presentation: Taking stock of the climate change and development agenda: Perspectives on poverty and equity in international processes after Copenhagen.
