Climate Basics #2: The International Perspective

23 May 2024, 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm


Jack Parker



The international climate change regime has developed since the days of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. While the annual COP gatherings are heavily reported in the media, the inner workings of this complex multilateral process are still little understood, including by legal practitioners. The discussions and decisions taking place at these conferences often set the scene for the evolving global political discourse on climate change and have ramifications for national climate action, including the development of national climate legislation, making them a must to understand for any legal practitioner in the field of climate law. This session with  Jack Parker and Legal Response International will take a two-pronged approach providing an overview of the international climate change regime & the negotiations and the relevance of legal practitioners in the international climate negotiations.
