Climate & Sustainability Project (CASP)

2015 to 2016

The year 2016 signals the implementation of the newly adopted UN Sustainable Development Goals and its effect on national development agendas and policies will be undeniable.

As part of the 2015 to 2016 CASP, the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance (SCELG) ran an interactive workshop aimed to discuss the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) within national policies. Participants and panellists engaged in discussions on how the implementation of the SDGs will affect them. Case studies on how the implementation of the SDGs looked in the US, Ghana, Jamaica, Uganda and Scotland were highlighted.

The keynote speaker in the workshop included Dr Sheelagh O'Reilly, Principal consultant IOD PARC, with over 30 years' experience working with international organisations in Human Development and Global Environmental Management; and Dr. Victoria Jenkins, Senior lecturer in the College of Law and Criminology at Swansea University and Co-director of the Hywel Dda Research Institute.

The workshop took place back to back with the IV SCELG Post Graduate Colloquium on Environmental Law and Governance, scheduled on 9th June 2016 also at the University of Strathclyde. For more information about the workshop.
