Governance

Various decision-making processes are influencing strategies and strategy implementation, which require coordinated action at different levels and from diverse actors. The cluster „Governance“ is addressing issues concerning the regulatory frameworks and associated challenges from various perspectives as well as scenarios of how to deal with profound change. Lessons learned from projects within the German National Climate Initiative and its international counterpart are also being discussed.

Local Climate Action as an Introduction to Transformation Processes (WS 04)

01/10/2015, 13:30
Room 4, ground floor

Local climate action transforms municipal processes and structures when successful. The complexity of the topic requires new ways of communication, cooperation and creativity. Modern soccer – under- stood as a process of endlessly creating opportunities – mirrors these change processes and provides opportunities to learn more about transformation process and how to go about it. Assuming that local climate action is or may be an entry into a transformation process, which frameworks and mechanisms are required to achieve success? Considering that (local) governments and politicians are rather risk avert than risk savvy, how do we perceive and understand the transformation process and our respec- tive roles in it? What must change? And: Can we learn from modern soccer?

Coordination, Dialogue and Knowledge Management in a Multi-Level System - Strategic projects supporting local climate action (WS 05)

01/10/2015, 15:30
Room 4, ground floor

A steadily increasing number of national and sub-national governments have been investing in promoting, supporting, monitoring and enforcing local climate action. At the same time, they have often fostered research, capacity building and other activities that aim to support their programmes targeting local governments.

This workshop aims at sharing experiences with strategic projects supporting local climate action within the context of a complex and multi-layered governance system of local, sub-national, national, regional and international levels. The goals are to identify obstacles and success factors of such supporting projects / programmes, as well as next steps that will even more effectively support local climate action. // This Workshop is organised by the NKI “Climate Dialogue” Project

Addressing Challenges of Climate Action in the Context of the ‘Energiewende’ (WS 06)

02/10/2015, 09:00
Room 4, ground floor

The energy transition has been generating rapt attention on a global scale since 2011. Since then, there have proven to be challenges in its implementation. As a complex social process, transforming the power and heat sector requires the involvement of all actors: communities, government, civil society, economics and science. The workshop broaches and reflects on the topic of societal discussion and closes by enriching it with a contribution on the change in the Indian energy system.
