Legislating the Paris Agreement – Short Brief

Briefing paper

Date produced: 31/10/2016

The rapid entry into force of the Paris Agreement increases the urgency for supporting developing countries in their legislative efforts to respond to climate change and implement their commitments under the Paris Agreement. In collaboration with the Climate & Development Knowledge Network (CDKN), LRI hosted a workshop in London on 28 September 2016 to develop approaches and ideas. The event combined an evening panel discussion with a hands-on legal expert workshop the following day.
