With little room for error and delay in delivering climate solutions, it is critical that we generate knowledge through rigorous evidence synthesis. The aim is to understand which climate policies work, under what conditions, why, and for whom. The hybrid MCC-hosted event

What Works Climate Solutions Summit
9 to 12 June 2024
Technische Universität Berlin
and virtually via video stream

is a high-level conference for evidence-based climate policy. It aims to promote and catalyse synthetic evidence on climate solutions for climate policy assessments (such as the IPCC’s 7th Assessment Report, the annual UNEP Emissions Gap Report and the Lancet Countdown on health and climate change) as well as other forms of scientific policy advice.

The summit brings together leading experts on climate solutions, key institutions curating scientific policy advice on the climate crisis (such as science assessment bodies and science academies), evidence synthesis communities (the Campbell Collaboration, Cochrane, Collaboration for Environmental Evidence, Evidence Synthesis International, the Evidence-Based Research Network) as well as policymakers, research funders, and other stakeholders and users of evidence. We aim to make progress on three major goals:

  • Advance and catalyse rigorous, transdisciplinary evidence synthesis work, and climate policy evaluation across the scientific community, involving all relevant stakeholders, to support upcoming assessment reports.
  • Build evidence synthesis capacity.
  • Form new collaborations and communicate the need for change.

We are grateful to our international partner network: Technische Universität Berlin, The Campbell Collaboration, Evidence Synthesis International, 3ie, Cochrane, LSHTM, Africa Centre for Evidence, The Evidence-Based Research Network, Collaboration for Environmental Evidence, Global Commission on Evidence and the University of Cambridge.
