D&C Days are held each year in the middle weekend during the Conference of the Parties (COP) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). They aim to influence the “ambition mechanism” process under the UFCCC and to inform climate action on all levels.
The days are organized in a dynamic format to encourage dialogue on a range of issues that link policy, knowledge, and practice. The innovative approaches used during the event aim to inspire the participants to interact, challenge existing thinking, and generate new ideas. This is an opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and negotiators to meet informally for honest and open discussions around development and climate change.
The topic for this year’s D&C Days is “Global ambition. Local action. Climate resilience for all.” The programme will focus on the following four themes related to this topic:
Transparency and downward accountability
Resilience through empowerment
Financing adaptation, risk reduction and risk management, and
Valuing lived experience and local knowledge.
This event is organized by a partnership between Global Resilience Partnership (GRP), Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre, International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), Environmental Finance Center West (EFCWest), the German Development Institute/Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD).
Contributing partners to this year’s event are Action on Climate Today (ACT).
Registration is now open for the 16th D&C Days. Attendance is free and open to anyone attending COP24 in Katowice. Register here.
Location: Hotel Diament Arsenal Palace, Paderewskiego 35, 41-500 Chorzow, Katowice, Poland
