The ecological transition (energy or agro-ecological transition, development issues, etc.) is a subject of public policies. They are complex, sometimes underpinned by blockages or misunderstandings. At IDDRI, we propose possible solutions based on science. We put them on the democratic agenda because they are aimed at political and economic decision-makers, as well as at civil society as a whole. In these podcasts, IDDRI research fellows present their thoughts to shed light on the debate.
IDDRI's history is the subject of our new episode.
In 1997, following the Kyoto climate summit, a few people realised that France lacked a team capable of linking negotiators and science. The scientific community was highly mobilised and the diplomatic corps was very present, but the scientific issue still needed to be put into policy... This observation led to the creation of IDDRI 20 years ago. A history marked by major national and international events in which the institute has been able to take part on its own scale. What role should IDDRI play in helping the transition succeed in the future? IDDRI is also a story of women and men, as Michel Colombier, co-founder with Laurence Tubiana, tells us in this dialogue led by Sophie Larmoyer.
