Global Trends in Climate Legislation – Lessons for COP26
The Grantham Research institute for Climate Change and the Environment (GRI) are hosting a two-day programme of events focused on the role of litigation and legislation in the implementation of the Paris Agreement on 1 and 2 July. These events will mark the launch of the GRI’s 2021 Global Trends in Climate Change Litigation Policy Report. This annual report – which has been published regularly since 2017 – provides policymakers, the legal community, and the wider public with an overview of the state of the art of climate litigation and highlights recent developments and recommendations for action.
The event on 1 July will address the role of national climate legislation in the implementation of the Paris Agreement, it will focus on recent innovations in climate change legislation around the world, emphasising the benefits of overarching multisectoral legal instruments as a mechanism for ensuring coordination, coherence, and accountability to climate commitments at all levels of government.
The event will be chaired by Dr Alina Averchenkova, who will make the case for climate change ‘framework’ legislation and highlight the key global trends and gaps. This will be followed by a panel discussion, with four distinguished experts in the field, who will provide insights into the experiences with designing and implementing climate legislation from the variety of geographical, socio-economic and political contexts.
