COP27 - Science Diplomacy and Climate Change: The Mediterranean as a global testbed

dijous, novembre 10, 2022 11:30 - 12:30 (CET)

The goal of this session is to showcase the Mediterranean as a test case on the role of science as a lever for spurring innovative joint actions on climate change. As an interface between different continents, it leads very different realities to dialogue using science as a neutral, fact-based common ground upon which countries can build together a shared understanding and create joint initiatives. Representatives from various international organizations and initiatives where research and innovation play a significant role will discuss the role of science in finding a common language and how the Mediterranean can bring together stakeholders around this issue.

The meeting will be moderated by Cristina Russo, Director of Global Approach & International Cooperation in R&I at the European Commission General Directorate General for Innovation. In addition to Alicia Pérez-Porro from CREAF, other speakers will include the President of the Royal Scientific Society de Jordània, Sumaya Bint-EL Hassan; the African Union Commissioner for Education, Science, Technology and Innovation, Mohamed Belhocine; the President of PRIMA Foundation, Angelo Riccaboni, and the European Commission's Science Diplomacy Coordinator, Jan Marco Müller.

The session will be live-streamed on the YouTube channel of the Mediterranean Pavilion - COP27.
