Lunch time Conference:

*Paving the way for climate compatible development: Global Climate
Change Alliance (GCCA) experiences in climate change mainstreaming*

Climate change is a global challenge that affects every sector of the economy
and all societies. It is not only an environmental problem but also a
development issue.

Mainstreaming climate change into development strategies is therefore one of
the main priorities of the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA).

The GCCA supports more than 35 countries and 8 regions, with an envelope of
over €285 million. Over the years, lessons learned from mainstreaming in
Cambodia or Mozambique have triggered similar efforts in Myanmar or the
Comoros.

This conference will provide an insight into the GCCA’s wide ranging
programmes across the globe, and the ways in which climate change is
integrated in national development processes.

The ISPC Science Forum 2016 [1] will rethink the pathways for agricultural
research to stimulate inclusive development of rural economies in an era of
climate change. The Forum will marshal evidence and build on lessons learned
to date, to suggest an updated list of priority research areas and approaches
which involve more strategic and inclusive engagement with partners.

in 1049 Bruxelles (Belgium)
Organised byDG DEVCO Unit C2

This Infopoint Lunch-time conference [1] will provide fresh insight and
provide new data on the role that land and forests play in reaching 1.5°C.On
the eve of COP22 there are still major unanswered questions about the role
that land and forests play in emissions reductions commitments. How to ensure
the long-term global goal recognises the need to reduce emissions from land
use change or even increase the carbon sink (negative emissions) while
respecting social and environmental limits to land-based mitigation? How to
ensure that removals of CO2 do not dilute ambition to reduce fossil fuel
emissions?

France will host the Conference of the Parties (COP 21) in Paris from
November 30 to December 11 to reach an agreement that will put the world on
track to limit global warming to 1.5° or 2° C. Our capacity to feed 9.5
billion people in 2050 in a context of climate change will depend on our
ability to keep our soils alive. France is proposing to take concrete actions
to improve the health of soils by sequestering organic matter [1]. More
information about this conference is available here [2].
