Global Solutions – The Road from Paris

As of: October 2018

Objective and activities

The 2015 UNFCCC Conference in Paris set the world on course for a new global climate policy. But how do we take it from here? “Global Solutions” tracks the “Road from Paris” and reports on people, projects and activities in developing and industrialising countries that are helping to achieve the ambitious international goals to limit global warming, adapt to climate change and conserve biodiversity. Its reporting focuses on projects that are financed by the International Climate Initiative. DVD recordings of the documentaries can be used as teaching material by schools and other educational facilities. The documentaries, background papers, picture galleries and audio-visual slide-shows will be readily available from an online multi-media platform in multiple languages.
