From Warsaw To Paris


The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung European Union in cooperation with E3G organise the Dialogue Series “From Warsaw to Paris” on EU ambition in the international climate regime in the run-up to the Climate Summit (COP21) in Paris in 2015.

Climate Dialogue Series

This Policy Brief reflects on the COP19 in Warsaw and on how different scenarios under the EU’s debate on the 2030 climate and energy framework could influence the UNFCCC negotiations.

The next years are critical for international action on climate change. The current negotiation process, as mandated by the Durban Plan of Action, aims at a new global climate agreement by the year 2015, which will take effect in 2020.

The third Policy Brief discusses how Europe can best form strategic alliances for an ambitious and fair global climate deal in Paris.

The level of political commitment in the build up to Paris means a deal is very likely. A successful climate agreement will establish an enduring framework within which governments can work together to keep the rise in global temperatures below 2°C.


The interrelation between climate change and migration is complex and at times hard to grasp. Environmentally-induced migration intersects with development, adaptation, humanitarian and migration policies, which leads to difficulties in adequately responding to the phenomenon.
