Development and Climate Days 2017 (D&C Days)

Global ambition | Local action | Climate resilience for all

This year’s D&C days will aim to influence the ‘Ambition Mechanism’ processes under the UNFCCC – particularly the Facilitative Dialogue and Global Stocktake – and to inform climate action on all levels.

At D&C Days we share learning experiences by engaging, being productive and having fun. The dynamic format encourages dialogue on a range of issues that link policy, knowledge and practice. Innovative approaches encourage participants to interact, challenge existing thinking and to generate new ideas.

The 15th annual D&C Days will continue to build on the topic of “Global ambition. Local action. Climate resilience for all”, and will focus on four themes:

  • Resilience through empowerment and access
  • Valuing lived experience, and local knowledge
  • Transparency and downward accountability
  • Shared resilience

Location: Kameha Grand, Am Bonner Bogen 1, 53227 Bonn, Germany

Date: 11–12 November 2017
