18th December 2018: Climate Change Research in Germany: fostering national and international climate change cooperation, HAW Hamburg, Germany

Although Germany is a leading country in respect of climate change research and projects, there is a perceived need for German-German and German-international interactions in that field. It´s against that background  that the first symposium „Climate Change Research in Germany: fostering national and international climate change cooperation“ is being organised by the Research and Transfer Centre „Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management“ of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg), in cooperation with the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP).

fold faq BACKGROUND

Germany is a leading country in respect of climate change research and projects. Apart from taking a key role in the field of climate change mitigation, and of being one of the largest supporters of international climate change adaptation initiatives, Germany invests substantial sums of money on climate projects within the country, and as part of its development aid programme. In additions, many public and private foundations, as well as national organisations such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) or the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, support research and cooperation with partners in developing countries in the field of climate change.

But even though much is happening in Germany and despite the fact that many initiatives are supported by Germany as part of its international efforts, there is a paucity of events where German climate researchers on the one hand, and international specialists from other countries currently living in Germany may meet and exchange information and experiences.

It is based on this perceived need for German-German and German-international interactions, that the first symposium „Climate Change Research in Germany: fostering national and international climate change cooperation“ is being organised by the Research and Transfer Centre „Sustainable Development and Climate Change Management“ of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg), in cooperation with the International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP). The event will offer an opportunity to discuss current climate change research, educational initiatives and projects, involving national and international experts. In order to maximise the benefits of the interactions, the event will be held in English.

All papers submitted will be subject to peer-review. Accepted papers will be published in the peer-reviewed book „Climate Change Research

fold faq OBJECTIVES

Consistent with the need for more cross-sectoral interactions among the variousstakeholders working in the field of climate change, the aims of the Symposium are asf ollows: 

  • I. to provide German and German-based research institutions and universities, withan opportunity to display and present their works in the field of climate change;
  • II. to foster the exchange of information, ideas and experiences acquired in theexecution of climate change initiatives and projects, especially successfulinitiatives and good practice which may be replicated;
  • III. to network the participants and provide a platform so they can explore possibilitiesfor cooperation.

Last but not least, a further aim of the event will be to document and disseminate the wealthof experiences available today. To this purpose, the papers submitted and which passedpeer-review will be published in the book „Climate Change Research in Germany: fostering national and international climate change cooperation“. This will be a furthervolume of the award-winning book series “Climate Change Management” published by Springer, which since its creation in 2008 has become the world´s leading book series onclimate change management.
