Climate Change, Sustainable Development and the Law: Governance Challenges and Innovations

Deadline: 22 November 2015

* What are the most pressing legal and governance challenges for the world in responding to the threats and opportunities of climate change in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, including the outcomes of Paris climate negotiations?
* Which innovative legal and institutional instruments and practices hold potential to help address these challenges, at international, national or local levels?

The Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL), in cooperation with the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law (LCIL) at the University of Cambridge, the Centre for Research on Climate Resilience (CR2) at the University of Chile, and the Centre for Advanced Studies in Environmental Law and Policy (CASELAP) of the University of Nairobi, is delighted to announce this year's student legal essay competition on...

The legal essay competition is open to students of law and related fields at the undergraduate and graduate level, from all regions of the world. Students from least developed countries are especially encouraged to apply. Papers should be 10 pages in length single-spaced, and address a current pressing international, regional or local legal research or governance challenge relating to climate change and sustainable development, identifying or proposing innovative legal instruments which might provide solutions to the challenge.
