The project aims to facilitate a focused, well-founded and trustful exchange between leading German environmental organisations and think tanks on the climate agenda of the G7 and the G20.

The expert dialogue will identify the most pressing climate policy issues for the G7 and the G20 and discuss recommendations for action.
