Description

Climate Law and Governance Day 2018

Advancing Law & Governance Contributions to Climate Action under the Paris Agreement

Registration is now open for the annual Climate Law and Governance Day 2018, a symposium during UNFCCC COP24, under the COP24 Presidency.

Friday 7 December, 2018, 08:30 - 18:00; University Silesia, Katowice, Poland

Climate Law and Governance Day (CLGD) brings together climate law experts, but also experts from other legal branches including public law, tort law, financial law, international economic law as well as governance experts, delegates and policy practitioners to exchange knowledge and experiences. This year, it is held alongside the UNFCCC CoP24 in Katowice, Poland.

Current core partners, supporting the initiative through significant financial and in-kind contributions include the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL), the Centre for International Governance Innovation (CIGI), the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law at the University of Cambridge (LCIL), the University of Bonn and the University of South Pacific. The initiative also continues to be supported by a diverse network of IGO, university, and NGO partners, as well as law firms and associations. See the CLGI website for more information.


EVENT DETAILS

Over a full day of dialogue, keynotes, and parallel roundtable/panel sessions, CLGD 2018 will:

  • Profile and share innovative international, national, and local climate law and governance mechanisms, challenges and best practices.

  • Catalyse knowledge exchange between delegates, legal practitioners and the legal academic community to co-generate new law and governance knowledge and approaches.

  • Facilitate collaboration and a law and governance community of practice to support capacity development to implement the Paris Agreement, the Paris Rulebook and COP22 outcomes, and SDG 13.

The event will once again convene a diverse gathering of International experts and scholars, legal practitioners, judges, government authorities, and climate leaders from civil society and the private sector.
