Events | IEEP at COP28     

For this year’s edition, IEEP will be present in Dubai to follow the discussions and meeting with colleagues around the world. In particular, we will host a side event and be present at the exhibition. 

1. Side-event “The Role of Academies in Climate Policy Advice”

  • 9 December, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm (UTC+4) 
  • SE Room 6

The event, organised in collaboration with the Colorado State University and the European Sustainable Agriculture Dialogue (ESAD) platform, will explore the role played by young and senior scientific academies and researchers in providing advice to meet climate goals and solutions. Several academies will share their work and experience. The discussion will include the benefits of engaging young academies to address global climate challenges. 

IEEP will bring its expertise related to climate research at the European level. The key messages IEEP will share relate to the importance of the link between science and policy and the understanding, at the political level, of the relevance of science-based advice. IEEP will, therefore, advise on the role of think tanks and research institutes and how to bridge the gap between science and policy.  

Speakers include:  

  • Gillian Bowser – Youth Environmental Alliance in Higher Education Network 
  • Hussam Hussein – Executive Director of Partnerships for Development, Royal Scientific Society Jordan 
  • Hussam Mahmoud – Chair, New Voices 
  • Jovana Milic – Member, Global Young Academy; Swiss Young Network for Science Policy and Diplomacy 
  • Rashied Modawi – Executive Director, Sudanese National Academy of Sciences 
  • Martijn Pakker – Head of Strategic Relations and Activities, IEEP
