When: 7th November, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM 

Where: hybrid event, virtual location at Conference Room 4/5, Technology & Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde

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) is partnering with the Strathclyde Centre on Environmental Law & Governance (SCELG) to convene this specialisation course at the University of Strathclyde in 2021. Building on earlier specialisation courses delivered during UNFCCC COP 25, COP24 and COP23, this one of a kind training course will take place during the CoP26 on Sunday, 7 November 2021, at the University of Strathclyde Technology & Innovation Centre. 

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, including issues such as loss and damage and human rights concerns.
