CLIMENGO Workshop (May 11, 2017)

Since all CLIMENGO members were in Bonn to attend the Climate Change Conference, the decision was easily made to have a CLIMENGO workshop as well on Thursday May 11. The meeting took place at the German Development Institute (https://www.die-gdi.de/en/), which was a great location close to the Climate Conference venue. The project members discussed the progress made in each work package and next steps for a successful continuation of the project. More specifically, they first discussed the updated mapping of the so-called climate-energy nexus (work package 1). Thereafter, they discussed the case-studies to be conducted for work package 2, zooming in on three micro-fields: fossil fuel subsidy reform, carbon markets and renewable energy. In addition, Naghmeh Nasiritousi discussed the first CLIMENGO working paper (see publications) for work package 3, in which she addresses the question how to assess legitimacy and effectiveness in a fragmented climate and energy governance landscape. Last but not least, the project members discussed deliverables, outreach and possible contributions to the upcoming COP in Bonn. All in all, it was a very productive workshop involving some interesting discussions and in which some important questions were addressed.
