POLIMP will facilitate a process to identify, for different policy and decision making levels, knowledge gaps about implications of possible directions of international climate policies. Subsequently, it will cover these gaps with knowledge packages derived from a broad range of existing reports, research and climate policy decisions at, e.g., EU and UNFCCC levels. With these information packages, climate policy associated stakeholders will be better able to extract key policy conclusions. Through series of workshops these packages will be communicated with stakeholders. In addition, POLIMP will provide an overall, on-line platform for information exchange of a wider list of contemporary and future climate policy initiatives.
Knowledge gaps will be identified for a range of priority issues related to climate policy making in consultation with stakeholders, but as a starting point for discussion the following three (categories of) issues are suggested by the POLIMP partners:
• What would different possible international climate policy scenarios entail for EU society, business, Member States and EU as a whole, in terms of economic, social, and environmental impacts looking especially at likely reactions and resulting political acceptability for different groups such as those impacted by job losses and reductions in welfare as well as potential gains?
• How can EU stakeholders deliberate in an evidence based manner about the pros and cons of these different scenarios?
• How can EU and EU stakeholders learn from design and implementation of climate policies worldwide as well as share the experience the EU has gained in designing and implementing climate friendly actions?
