22nd Foreign Policy Conference - On the Way to Carbon Zero (3)

Foreign Policy in the Age of Climate Change - Debating Green Foreign Policy

What is Germany’s climate policy approach for those regions most affected by climate change?

Which countries and which regions should Germany and the EU prioritize in its climate partnerships and alliances?

What can be achieved through climate partnerships – and what are the limits of these cooperation projects?

Which state and non-state actors need to be mobilized in Germany / EU, and which actors in the target country for a successful climate partnership?

How should Germany and the EU engage a key country like India in its climate diplomacy?

Can and should we cooperate with China and Russia on climate policy - and how would that work?

What can be achieved through transatlantic coordination - and where are the limits?

How could China and Russia and other big emitters - especially from the Global South - be engaged?

What impact would a transatlantic green transformation have on great power rivalries in the triangle Washington, Moscow, and Beijing?

How should Berlin deal with countries whose economy is centered around fossil fuel exports, such as Algeria or the Gulf States?
