International Conference: Climate or Development?
28-29 October 2005, Hamburg Institute of International Economics, Hamburg, Germany

As poverty reduction has become the single major objective of development activities and as climate policy has evolved to be one of the most prospering areas of bilateral development cooperation, the following questions arise: Is there a hidden relationship between poverty alleviation and climate policy in developing countries? Or is there simply too little scope for directly poverty-oriented activities? Is poverty alleviation simply a lip service of development policy while other policies, in the interest of private CDM investors or local climate negotiators dominate in practice? Which kind of interests could be involved and could one imagine institutional structures that would foster a true synergy between climate policy and poverty alleviation? Which would be the climate policy related activities which could create most synergies? Does the CDM in its current practice really foster development? How can adaptation reach the poor? To what extent is cooperation in climate policy truly additional to other development finance? Renowned international speakers will address these issues in Hamburg.
