Global Climate Forum

GCF

Berlin, Germany

The Global Climate Forum initiates and performs high-class research on climate change in close interaction with stakeholders. It provides a pluralistic communication platform in the emerging global field of governments, local authorities, businesses, and social movements. This field lies beyond the traditional linkage between academic institutions and the nation state hosting them. It requires a capability to learn from each other in situations where consensus is impossible, perhaps not even desirable. As a key requisite for addressing the climate challenge in this spirit, GCF contributes to a new economic theory that will enhance the capability to manage climate risks. Until January 2012, the Global Climate Forum was known as the European Climate Forum. This change reflects the reality that the network has expanded well beyond Europe its work has led quite naturally to linkages with America, China, Australia and others.
