Global Environmental Governance and Sustainable DevelopmentEcology and sustainable development are central areas for securing the future of humanity. It is to the credit of the Green movement that ecology has become one of the main issues of politics. The transformation towards a carbon free economy and the struggle for more social fairness are fundamentals of the vision of a global Green New Deal. We need smart regulations to enourage a sustainable economy fueled by renewable energies that provide safe, green jobs.
Our project Climate Network - Revitalizing Transatlantic Relations for a Green Economy fosters policy exchange and mutual learning to make progress toward regional low-carbon growth strategies.
We are engaged in global climate negotiations and the worldwide struggle to finance effective, efficient and equitable climate action, particularly adequate support for Southern countries. To meet the global financing needs for migration and adaptation efforts, new ways of funding need to be pursued. Our Climate Finance Program offers analysis and monitoring of public climate funds and the emerging global finance architecture.
