Event description

Description

Join us for Development and Climate Days 2018 - two days of informal discussion and dialogue linking climate change and development.

Development and Climate Days (D&C Days) is an annual event for people attending the Conference of the Parties (COP24) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The gathering brings together practitioners, negotiators, scientists and policymakers to explore key issues, share best practice, disseminate news, literature and reports, and promote links between development and climate.

Attendance is free and open to everyone attending COP24 in Katowice.


This year's themes

The 2018 D&C Days programme will focus on four themes related to 'Global ambition. Local action. Climate resilience for all'. These are:

Transparency and downward accountability
Resilience through empowerment
Financing adaptation and managing risk, and
Valuing lived experience, and local knowledge.

Within these themes, D&C Days will be tackling big questions, seeking effective and practical answers, and working together on fair solutions. Through creative activities and interactive discussion, we will consider a series of complex questions.
