Climate change demands a prominent role in foreign policy. In light of the slow pace of progress in international climate negotiations, a stronger role for foreign policy in international climate policy has been called for– namely through climate diplomacy.
Climate Diplomacy Week is a time, where EU Delegations around the world reach out to communities and partner organisations, highlighting positive global action and collaboration on climate change. 2018 will see two Climate Diplomacy Weeks: the first one from 18-24 June and the second one from 24-30 September 2018.
Adaptation Futures 2018 provides an opportunity for international networking and dialogue with more than 1000 participants from academia, government, civil society and business, all aiming to take climate adaptation forward.
The meeting of the high-level political forum on sustainable development in 2018 convened under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council will be held from Monday, 9 July, to Wednesday, 18 July 2018; including the three-day ministerial meeting of the forum from Monday, 16 July, to Wednesday, 18 July 2018.
