COP21 marked a significant turning point for global climate policy at. Actually, all nations in the world are called on to address greenhouse gas emissions down to the maximum 2 °C threshold (in the effort to limit temperature increase to 1.5 °C). For this target to be achieved during the next half century, knowledge and wisdom from around the world must be built up and shared. In addition, capacity-building along with technology transfer and financing are required to enhance low-carbon growth opportunities in developing countries. Accordingly, the creation of a research community with a sense of ownership in each country is vital to act as a long-term foundation for policy formulation…
