CEEP proposes polycentric strategy to UNFCCC

In addition to its contribution to assessments prepared by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), CEEP has actively participated in proceedings of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and has been an observer organization and participant in the Conference of the Parties (COP) process. CEEP recognizes the vital role of developing countries in global climate policy and action. It has recommended a polycentric strategy for the global community to tackle climate change which would amplify the voice of those countries and communities at greatest risk. CEEP researchers conduct ongoing research and issue position papers at COP meetings, as well as organizing and participating in NGO forums, individually and with collaborating organizations. Its members have published monographs, scholarly articles, and books on its polycentric strategy since the early 1990s.
