DiploFoundation Climate Change Portal
As part of our course discussion on a 'cognitive toolkit' for climate change, we also looked at the principle of "Common But Differentiated Responsibilities" (CBDR). In the following, we would like to give an insight into how we approached this topic.
LECTURE: The course text gives a short introduction:
ANIMATION: DiploFoundation also produced a short animated video clip to elaborate the principle further. We used this as an opportunity to experiment with various forms of communication and learning tools:
ASSIGNMENT: Last but not least, participants of the 2011 climate change diplomacy course were asked to reflect on this principle in more detail in one of the weekly course assignments:
"Please explain the meaning of this concept, and describe where and how you find it implemented in the Kyoto Protocol. Do you find it a useful tool to guide future global negotiations on climate change? How, if at all, should it be reflected in a post-Kyoto Protocol global climate change deal?"
SHARE and COMMENT: Here, we invite participants to share their answers or part of their answers and to discuss the views of their colleagues. We also look forward to commenst and questions from non-course participants.
The page will be open for comments from Saturday, October 15.
