Call For Papers: Symposium on Climate Finance

20 Jul 2023

According to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), climate finance refers to local, national or transnational financing—drawn from public, private and alternative sources of financing—that seeks to support mitigation and adaptation actions that will address climate change.

Climate finance is needed for mitigation, because large-scale investments are required to significantly reduce emissions. It is equally important for adaptation, as significant financial resources are needed to adapt to the adverse effects and reduce the impacts of a changing climate. Against this background and based on the need to discuss the principles of practice of climate financing, the “Symposium on Climate Finance: Opportunities in Funding Efforts Towards Decarbonisation and Climate Change Adaptation” is being organised by the European School of Sustainability Science and Research (Germany), the Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme, the UK Consortium for Sustainability Research and Liverpool John Moores University (UK).

Call for papers

The Symposium will offer experts from the finance sector, academia, technology and policy-making, with an opportunity to meet and discuss the wide range of approaches and methods which are currently being used – or which will be deployed in the future – in order to tackle the many challenges associated with climate change. As a long-lasting documentation of their works, the experiences from the presenters will be documented and promoted in the book “Climate Finance: Opportunies in Funding Efforts Towards Decarbonisation and Climate Change Adaptation”, to be published by Springer Nature. This is part of the Climate Change Management Series, the leading peer-reviewed book series on matters related to climate change. The peer-reviewed nature of the book means that contributions to them have been officially counting over the years for promotion and tenure purposes. All submitted papers will be subject to the standard peer-review procedures.

Expressions of interest to attend the event, initially consisting of a 200 words abstract outlining the paper and with the full contact details of the author(s) should be sent to the organising team at: info (at) iccip (dot) net. The details will be discussed with the selected authors.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 20th September 2023. Full papers are due by 10th January 2024.
