L'OIDD organise un colloque international intitulé « La préparation juridique pour les changements climatiques: Promouvoir les marchés du carbone et de l'adaptation durable au Mexique et en Amérique latine" qui aura lieu le 8 et 9 septembre 2011, à l’Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM) à Mexico.
This international symposium will be a forum that encourages meeting, learning, dialogue and reflection among key decision makers, representatives of states, national and international experts, members of the business community, academics and students. The goal of the Symposium is to generate practical legal analysis, increased legal capacity and realistic recommendations that will position Mexico and Latin America as examples of green development and share legal models for proposing and implementing solutions to climate change.
Mexico and other Latin American countries have adopted a proactive attitude towards the challenges and risks associated with climate change. The region has started legal and economic reforms, proposing plans for low carbon economic growth that meets their social, political and economic priorities. These reforms aim at incorporating climate change concerns in the development of all environmental, social and economic policies, and to establish the foundations for local carbon emission markets that are compatible with other international markets.
This symposium is co-organised by the International Development Law Organization (IDLO); the Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL); the Colegio de Abogados Ambientales de Mexico (CAAM); the Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP); and the Special Committee on Climate Change of the Chamber of Deputies of Mexico, with support from the Department of Law of the Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM).
The Symposium will also be webcast through both the IDLO and ITAM websites, in order to foster greater international participation and impact.
