1. Collecting Water via CIFOR fotograaf Ollivier Gerard (CIFOR)The climate change debate is informed by a substantial amount of (academic) research. But this seems to have little effect on public opinion or policy. Why is the climate change debate stagnating? Do we have too many data? Or is climate change research too much focused on the problem rather than on the solutions? How can lobby and advocacy efforts move beyond the mere research results? What will be effective strategies while preparing for the upcoming UN climate conference in Paris?

Join our next SID-ISS debate to discuss the role of research in the stagnating climate change debate and the possible solutions to move it forward.

Sylvia Borren – Director Greenpeace Netherlands
Pier Vellinga – Professor in Climate Change (Wageningen University)
