Barbara Saerbeck and Mareike Well, researchers at FFU and at the Free University's Department of Educational Research and Social Systems, presented results of the ENVIPA-DFG project "Behind the Scens" at the first day of COP22.
Mareike Well presented on patterns and expectations of governance networks for NDCs. She described common preferences among stakeholders on intended NDCs prior to the Paris agreement, particularly as they relate to long-term issues and focusing on both mitigation and adaptation. She concluded by stressing: that while similar actors do cooperate amongst each other, crosscutting actions also exist; and the increasing role of non-party stakeholders reflected in networks.
