Climate Change Conference

IKEM at the COP29

View from Baku

Each COP is a defining moment in the fight for our planet and a sustainable future. Scientific findings including the latest IPCC reports and the worrying development of global warming have repeatedly stressed the need for urgent climate action – a key priority for this year’s COP29, hosted in Baku (Azerbaijan) between 11 and 22 November 2024.

Almost nine years after the Paris Agreement, COP 28 will be primarily centered around the implementation and enhancement of the commitments made in previous COP meetings. This encompasses topics such as setting more ambitious emission reduction targets, creating a stronger framework for monitoring and improving countries’ climate actions (NDCs) and providing funds – especially for less wealthy and climate-vulnerable nations.

Key topics

Energy – Climate – Security

The energy-climate-security nexus is an emergent framework that captures the intricate and interdependent relationships between environmental resources, energy systems, climate change, and security dynamics. While the links between climate change and security, between energy and climate change and between energy and security have been part of the academic and political debate for some time, understanding the combined interrelationships and interdependencies between these three areas is a comparatively new field of research.
