Seeking an international specialisation in climate law and governance? Through this half-day course during UNFCCC COP, earn a certification from the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL), with leading speakers from UN-Environment, the IUCN, the EBRD and other partners, taught by top experts from the Universities of Cambridge, McGill, MIT, Oslo and others.
Laws and institutions are crucial instruments for promoting sustainable development, making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low-carbon and climate-resilient systems, and ensuring full implementation of the Paris Agreement.
In order to share knowledge and strengthen capacity on legal and institutional climate reforms and frameworks, the Climate Law and Governance Initiative (CLGI), which also coordinates the annual Climate Law and Governance Day knowledge-sharing symposium, convenes this specialisation course with the support of key partners. Building on the specialisation course provided during UNFCCC COP 25, COP24 and COP23, this one of a kind training course takes place during the COP26 on Sunday, 7 November 2021. This Course is part of the events surrounding Climate Law and Governance Day, co-hosted by the Universities of Strathclyde, Cambridge, Glasgow and GCILS.
This interactive, intensive capacity-building course will provide an opportunity for candidates to:
- Learn from the insights of renowned legal experts, deepening their understanding of the legal and institutional mechanisms available to implement their NDCs and the Paris Agreement
- Be introduced to crucial legal and governance challenges and opportunities, including how laws can strengthen mitigation, adaptation and resilience, and promote climate finance, compliance and transparency under the Paris Agreement, also activate loss and damage mechanisms and address human rights concerns.
