ECRAAL’ offices in Brussels, 27 May 2011: Climate change mitigation and adaptation in the future EU development policy :  What role for the research community in Asia, Africa and Latin America?  

 

Alongside ECRAAL’s engagement activities to input its members’ interests into the formulation of FP8, ECRAAL is preparing parallel policy engagement actions at EU level. This is one such action. The principal aim here is to represent the AAL research community in the modernisation of EU development policy as concerns climate change in particular.

 Joyeeta Gupta and Nicolien van der Grijp will launch the debate with an introduction to the broader findings of their collected volume: Mainstreaming Climate Change in Development Co-operation:

Theory, Practice and Implications for the European Union (Cambridge University Press, 2010).

 Thereafter the workshop, looking from the stand the stand point of the AAL research and higher education community, will deal with relevant issues, such as:

- the formulation of FP8 as concerns climate change adaptation and mitigation and synergies with EU development priorities

- the Treaty of Lisbon and EU development actions

- the modernisation of EU development policy







- the new EU budget instruments to reflect parallel EU priorities in various relevant fields, including those of development, climate change and research

 

Expressions of interest in speaking or participating actively, are invited without delay to info@ecraal.org, providing a brief abstract of topics they wish to address.

We are particularly keen to have the input of AAL partners from the research community.
