This Conference will be the first edition of an annual conference specifically focused on the legal and governance aspects of climate change mitigation, adaptation and finance in the global south. The Conference on ‘Climate Law & Governance in the Global South’ will bring together country representatives, development practitioners, law & governance experts, researchers, academics and other key stakeholders to discuss the most pressing issues facing developing country governments and citizens. The Conference will take place at the Faculty of Law of the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Howard College Campus in Durban, on Saturday 3 December & Sunday 4 December, 2011.
This Conference aims at stimulating dialogue, analyzing current trends and catalyzing legal thought on climate change and its implications for the development of laws and institutions in developing countries. Specifically, the conference hopes to address the gap in best practices related to climate change laws and governance in developing countries. As such, the conference will focus on fostering knowledge-sharing of best practices between the variety of stakeholders involved in climate law and governance with a focus on developing a South-South dialogue.
