Climate and Energy

While climate change poses an increasing threat worldwide, the adoption of the Paris Agreement in 2015 formalises the international community’s commitments and actions toward a sustainable and decarbonised society. The Climate and Energy (CE) Area aims to accompany this transition by conducting strategic research and supporting the development of zero-carbon initiatives. Our team of international experts is engaged in various projects for the development and implementation of climate and energy-related strategies and policies, in particular international climate negotiations, bilateral and multilateral cooperation, carbon pricing initiatives, market-based mechanisms, and the development and maintenance of databases. With a special focus and expertise on the Asia-Pacific region, the CE Area maximises the efforts to facilitate transition to decarbonised society at the national and local levels as an agent of change in this area.
