Legal Aspects of the Paris Climate Change Agreement
On 21 April 2015, the Belgian federal Climate Change Section organised an international workshop, aiming at exploring, in the light of current negotiations, the legal aspects of the Durban mandate “to develop a protocol, another legal instrument or an agreed outcome with legal force under the Convention, applicable to all Parties”.
The workshop was held in Brussels under the auspices of the Belgian Federal Minister of Energy,Environment and Sustainable Development. The discussions were held under the Chatham House rule. All presentations are available on this page.
