We invite abstracts (max. 250 words) for research papers as well as discussion and briefing papers that address one or more of the following questions.

  • Which linkages between multiple political processes addressing sustainable development and climate change can foster synergies and propel the transition towards a sustainable, low-carbon and climate resilient future?
  • Non-state and subnational actors and cooperative initiatives are relatively underrepresented in developing countries, how can such actions deliver sustainable and climate smart solutions across both developed and developing countries?
  • How to increase national and local capacity, including financing, for actions that deliver on both sustainable development and climate change?

Abstracts need to be sent to friederike.eichhorn[at] by 18 February. Notification of acceptance will be given by 5 March, full research, discussion, and briefing papers are due by 1 May 2017.
