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. It will focus on the EU’s role as an actor in the global process whilst taking into consideration the implications of recent changes within EU policy processes and policy evolution in other areas of external relations policy. 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.
