The 16th Conference of the Parties begins this week in Cancún, Mexico, and more than a dozen SEI researchers are attending to advise government and NGO delegations, monitor negotiations, and participate in a wide range of side events.
SEI itself is co-sponsoring one major event, entitled Mutual accountability for a global low-carbon economy within the UNFCCC and beyond. This will be held Tuesday, 7 December, from 20:15 to 21:45 in Room Pitaya at CancúnMesse. SEI researcher Richard Klein will moderate, and Sivan Kartha and Clarisse Kehler Siebert will be among the panelists. The German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) are co-sponsors.
SEI is also co-sponsoring the COP16 Development and Climate Days, which will take place on 4 and 5 December in the Cancún Caribe Park Royal Hotel. Richard Klein will lead the first day’s activities, and other SEI researchers will participate as well. Click here for the draft schedule.
In addition, SEI will have a booth at CancúnMesse, featuring a wide range of policy briefs and other publications, several of them produced especially for COP16. We will host “booth talks” with SEI experts as well, starting Thursday, 2 December; more details will be announced shortly.
Also at COP16, SEI researchers Olivia Taghioff and Melinda Sundell are organizing a seminar through the Swedish International Agricultural Network Initiative (SIANI), titled “From Source to Sink: How to Make Agriculture Part of the Solution to Climate Change While Contributing to Poverty Alleviation.” That event will be held from on Monday, 6 December, from 10:00 to 13:00 at the Cancún Caribe Park Royal Grand Hotel. Click here for details.
SIANI will also have a booth at the Agriculture and Rural Development Day, Saturday, 4 December, at the Gran Meliá Cancún Hotel.
SEI researchers are participating as panelists at several side events, too. We will post reports of their activities on our website, as well as their insights as negotiations proceed.
