Current topics of climate governance

The disputes about a post-Kyoto agreement have intensified in Poznan and the negotiations are deadlocked. But climate change is beyond doubt a transnational problem, which can only be tackled within the international community and civil society.

Furthermore, many questions remain open and will hopefully be resolved in Copenhagen:
How can burdens, costs and chances of climate change be distributed justly? Which strategies are helpful in mitigating climate change? How can emission reduction targets be shaped in a post-Kyoto protocol? Which role can emerging economies, such as China, India and Brazil, play?

The Heinrich Böll Foundation deals with the most important questions of justice, mitigation, adaptation, impacts and finance – including the aspect of gender justice – in many ways.
