Climate Pioneership and Leadership in Structurally Disadvantaged Maritime Port Cities

In this article, the authors, among them Ecologic Institute's Linda Mederake, assess innovative climate governance in small-to-medium-sized structurally disadvantaged cities (SDCs). Considering their deeply ingrained severe economic and social problems, it would be reasonable to assume that SDCs act primarily as climate laggards or at best as followers. However, novel empirical findings show that SDCs are capable of acting as climate pioneers. Different types and styles of climate leadership and pioneership and how they operate within multi-level and polycentric governance structures are identified and assessed. SDCs seem relatively readily willing to adopt transformational climate pioneership styles to create 'green' jobs, for example, in the offshore wind energy sector and with the aim of improving their poor external image.

Ecologic Institute's Side Events at COP24 – Review

At COP24 in Katowice (Poland), the final rulebook was set for the implementation of the Paris Agreement. While negotiations were ongoing, non-Party stakeholders presented and discussed diverse climate solutions at the side-events. The Ecologic Institute was represented at several side events and hosted two of them.

Ecologic Institute's Events at COP24

The annual climate change summit in 2018 takes place in the Polish city of Katowice. The task for negotiators is clear: agree a stringent rulebook for the Paris Agreement to ensure the global climate change treaty can work effectively. The summit, formally the 24th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC (COP24), will also see high-level events and provide a forum to discuss relevant developments in climate change policy from around the world. Ecologic Institute will attend the talks with a delegation of 12 colleagues, assisting with legal expertise on actual negotiation matters, but also presenting relevant research results to add to the global dialogue
