About this Event

UNFCCC-CISDL Workshop on International Law & Governance Contributions to the Implementation of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement: Investment and Oceans

On Saturday 26 October 2019, the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL) and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat will convene a workshop on International Law & Governance Contributions to the Implementation of the UNFCCC Paris Agreement, with a special focus on Investment and Oceans.

The workshop will take place as a half-day long event and will be held at the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law. It will present viewpoints of leading international and national legal experts in the spheres of climate change impacts relating to investments and oceans.

The workshop will comprise two panels:

1) The UNFCCC Paris Agreement and Katowice Rulebook: Advancing Ambition and Compliance on Climate Change - This legal experts panel focuses on key questions in international and domestic law and policy on climate change: What are the international community’s obligations under the Paris Agreement and how are they being implemented? How can domestic legal and governance reforms foster higher ambition and compliance across the spectrum of developing and developed states? How does the guidance provided in the ‘Katowice Rulebook’ contribute to advance the objectives of the Paris Agreement nationally and internationally?

2) Climate Law and Governance Innovations for Sustainable Investment and Resilient Oceans - This international legal experts panel will focus on domestic legal innovations addressing climate change in relation to investment and oceans: How can the UNFCCC Paris Agreement and its Katowice Rulebook guide efforts to address climate investment and conserve our oceans? What innovative laws and governance practices can incentivize climate change-related investments nationally and internationally? What legal and institutional reforms can protect the world’s oceans and contribute to global responses to climate change?

The panels will bring together leading experts, researchers, academics and other key actors to identify the critical issues in each of the topic areas.
