A ten-point memorandum entitled “The Climate – Justice – Cooperation Nexus: 10 Cornerstones of the Great Transformation towards Sustainability” calls upon policy-makers and business leaders at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn to address pressing issues to tackle climate change.

The conference “Climate Action and Human Wellbeing at a Crossroads: Historical Transformation or Backlash?” was held as a preface to the UN Climate Change Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany, in November 2017. The conference was hosted by the German Development Institute (Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik - DIE) in cooperation with the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).

Some 300 experts from research, politics, civil society, business and the media, including climate negotiators, met to discuss the future of global cooperation and options for decarbonising the global economy in a socially responsible manner. A particular focus was placed on the perspective of developing countries, rising powers and small island nations.
