Science and policy to assist and support SIDSs and LDCs to negotiate a strong international climate regime, enabling low carbon development and supporting adaptation needs

Download the SURVIVE Project briefing with more background on our approach and activities.

The Survive project is a joint project between Climate Analytics and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research e.V. (PIK) that aims to provide science and policy support for Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to negotiate a strong international climate regime, enabling low carbon, sustainable development and supporting adaptation needs. One of the main activities is the provision of strategic, technical, policy and scientific and legal support for negotiators from SIDS and LDCs for and during the UNFCCC negotiations. SURVIVE provides support based on the latest science and policy analysis in relation to mitigation, adaptation, finance and MRV, with the goal of achieving an effective and legally binding international climate agreement by 2015.

SURVIVE provides technical support for tasks such as preparation for the review of the long-term global goal, set to come into effect in 2013, to close the emissions gap between pledges under the Cancun Agreement and the emission pathways needed to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The project promotes the development of a new climate regime that integrates the institutions established in Cancun and Durban. Specifically, this involves the operationalization of an international funding architecture that ensures scaled up provision of long-term financing and that operates the Green Climate Fund in a way which provides adequate means of implementation of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), as well as for adaptation plans and projects.

SURVIVE is a collaboration between the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research e.V. (PIK) and CLIMATE ANALYTICS gGmbH. SURVIVE is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) as part of its International Climate Initiative (ICI).
