Experts, professional consultants, and people curious about climate change are invited to visit CMCC stand. The exhibit presents materials about research on climate change realized at CMCC and Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM), cases analyses and recent publications relevant to climate science, climate modeling, climate change impacts and policies. 

Transparency, Policy Surveillance, and Levels of Effort
December 9, 2015 – h. 10:30/12:00 – Japanese Pavillon (Blu zone) This event is organized in collaboration with RFF e RITE. CMCC/FEEM Speakers: Prof. Carlo Carraro and Prof. Massimo Tavoni.

The IPCC at a Crossroads: Enhancing the Usefulness of IPCC to the UNFCCC Process
December 9, 2015 – h. 11:30/13:30
The IPCC’s past success in synthesizing large volumes of research and communicating the results to policymakers does not guarantee future success. We discuss problems and challenges that the IPCC faces and address two questions: Is the IPCC doing the right things? Is the IPCC doing things right? (Co-organized by FEEM, PIK, Harvard University and Stanford University)

Multi-Level Climate Governance: An Integrated Analysis of National, Regional and Local Policies
December 9, 2015 – h. 15:00/16:30
This side event assesses the current framework of multi-level governance for climate change control, providing an integrated analysis of national, regional, and urban policies and commitments. By comparing INDCs according to different metrics, it provides an overview of their future implementation. (Co-organised by FEEM, University Luigi Bocconi, Institute of Energy and Environment Economics and Policy (IEFE) and University of Edinburgh).

Can National Policies and INDCs alone lead to a Workable and Effective Climate Regime?
December 8, 2015 - 11:30/13:00 – Blu Zone
