The world at a Crossroads – press briefing on COP23
5 November, 1 p.m.
Room Siebengebirge, Maritim Hotel Königswinter, Rheinallee 3, 53639 Königswinter

You will meet:

Ngedikes Olai Uludong, Permanent Representative of Palau to the United Nations

Leena Srivastava, Vice Chancellor, Professor at TERI University, India

Dirk Messner, Director German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE)

Nebojsa Nakicenovic, Deputy Director General and Deputy CEO of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA), Austria

At this year’s climate conference in Bonn the world finds itself at a crossroads. The talks will no longer be about a mere reduction of greenhouse gases, but will have to discuss a socially responsible decarbonisation of the world economy and a new dynamic of global cooperation in the face of nationalism and xenophobia. Together with you and our international guests, we would like to discuss those pressing topics.

The briefing will start at 1 p.m. at the Maritim Hotel Königswinter and is set to take around 45 minutes. Due to our international guests, the briefing will be held in English. German colleagues are welcome to pose questions in German.
