Shortly after the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and just ahead of the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC in Paris (COP21), the JRC organises a joint event together with the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BBAW) to discuss the inequality dimension of climate change. The event will be opened by JRC Director-General Vladimír Šucha and Chair of the JRC Board of Governors Walter Mönig as well as Annette Grüters-Kieslich, Vice-President, Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities, and include a keynote by Apollonia Miola, JRC Institute for Environment and Sustainability.

The threats posed by climate change are increasingly seen as a major problem for the future of nature and humanity. The impacts of climate change can cause disasters when structural societal inequalities are present, thereby exacerbating their severity. Global efforts to set the world on a climate change resilient development pathway require an understanding of the relationships between climate change and development, as well as the identification of the countries, groups of people and sectors most seriously threatened by climate change.

On this occasion, the Letter of Intent with the Global Young Academy will also be signed.
