U.S.-European Union High Level Dialogue on Climate Change

On April 23, 2002 the United States and European Union agreed to conduct regular meetings on Climate Change to enhance cooperation on climate-related science and research. The two sides identified cooperative research activities in six areas: (1) carbon cycle research; (2) aerosol-climate interactions; (3) feedbacks, water vapor and thermohaline circulation; (4) integrated observation systems and data; (5) carbon capture and storage; and (6) hydrogen technology and infrastructure.

Most recently the U.S. and EU held a Summit on Energy Security, Efficiency, and Climate change that reaffirmed the importance of jointly ensuring secure, affordable supplies of energy and tackling climate change as central interlinked global challenges facing the international community. Addressing these issues requires urgent, sustained global action and an integrated policy approach, using a wide range of regionally, nationally or internationally defined policy tools and measures.
