Both the urgency of climate change issues and their complexity require
innovation in diplomatic processes. Climate change diplomacy is a
multi-disciplinary field demanding input from a wide variety of disciplines
including science, technology, policy processes, legislation, ethics, and
philosophy. Climate change is a global issue that transcends national
borders, but it must be addressed on all levels from the individual to the
United Nations, in local, national, regional, and global fora. By
necessity, climate change diplomacy is multistakeholder diplomacy. Although
states must take the leading role in addressing climate change issues,
other actors, including civil society, the business community, and academia
are essential partners. This conference will focus largely on
capacity-building and will address the training and other needs of small
states, and other actors who, due to limited financial or human resources,
currently do not participate fully in climate change diplomacy.
