POLIMP - Publications


POLIMP ensured timely publications targeting at policymakers and stakeholders, so as to mobilise acquired, processed and accumulated knowledge for policy debate.

Policy Brief Series

POLIMP presented policy recommendations in a series of policy briefs. Three thematic Policy Briefs and a final Policy Brief with synthesis of recommendations were be produced.

Working Document Series

This format of publication focuses on the technical results of POLIMP, which will be available in a series of technical reports. Working Documents lay a sound basis on which policy options can be formulated. For example, methodologies, tools or indicators are detailed and empirical data are presented in Working Documents.

Climate Change Monitor Series

POLIMP Climate Change Monitor reports focuses on development in the UNFCCC negotiations, as well as the EU climate change policy and provides a regular stream of most updated information in a concise form. Every issue starts with an editorial contributed by one of the WP leaders with comments on the most important current development in UN negotiations, COP decisions, EU legislations and regulations. The main section contains a structured list of online sources of knowledge including primary sources, as well as the official website of various FP7 activities in climate change policy. In total, 6 of these reports were published during POLIMP’s implementation. Every issue will be electronically distributed to subscribers at free of charge.

2. Main Topic – thematic questions linked to the topic of a corresponding Webinar ,
3. “Buzz of the Week” – question(s) on a relevant climate policy topic currently in the news.
