2010 Summer School
International Centre for Climate Governance (ICCG)
The “International Center for Climate Governance” (ICCG) is a joint initiative of the Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM) and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini (FGC), developed in cooperation with the Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC), which focuses its research activities on the design of climate policy and related governing institutions.
Located on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, in front of Saint Mark’s Square in Venice, the ICCG gathers researchers in economics and political sciences who explore the interdependencies between the economic, social, cultural, religious and political aspects of climate governance.
Fully interdisciplinary and open to the interaction and cooperation between different worlds and cultures, the ICCG favours dialogues and negotiations to achieve equitable and effective decisions on climate policy. As a matter of fact, the ICCG promotes initiatives at the sectoral, regional, national, and international level designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere and to facilitate the adaptation of economic and environmental systems, particularly in developing countries, to the changing climate patterns.
The activities of the ICCG are coordinated by the Climate Impacts and Policy Division of the Euro-Mediterranean Centre for Climate Change (CMCC) and funded by the Italian Ministry of the Environment and Land Protection. They are developed through the organisation of events of international relevance - seminars, round tables, workshops - and the implementation of a training programme targeted to researchers and government officials from developing countries.
