Amidst the geopolitical drama – on climate, Iran, trade to name a few - there is no denying that expectations on Europe as a champion for a cooperative, rules-based international order continue to intensify. In E3G’s latest newsletter we make the case for Europe to double down on climate diplomacy and cooperation as a means to defending international partnerships and values-based multilateralism.
To keep Europe on track, E3G have created a handy To Do List highlighting 6 key tasks for delivering European climate leadership before the summer break. I share a recent presentation on the role of climate change governance in a world of rising geopolitical tensions. Going deeper on the EU internal front, Manon Dufour and Quentin Genard develop a proposal for rebooting the European ambition debate. Next, on the occasion of Mogherini’s Climate Security Summit, Camilla Born warns not to ignore the threat climate impacts pose to the international rules-based system. Meanwhile, Jennifer Tollmann identifies areas for international cooperation during next week's European climate diplomacy week. And finally, Claire Healy showcases the under-celebrated real economy diplomacy already taking place in Europe and beyond.
