The way to Rio+20: Legal Best Practices on Climate Change Policy
With Rio+20 negotiations approaching, the International Development Law Organization (IDLO) and the Centre for International Sustainable development Law (CISDL), release their Compendium of Legal Best Practices on Climate Change Policy. The purpose of this Compendium is to highlight the challenges that domestic governments face in implementing their international commitments to climate change policy and the means through which those challenges can be overcome. It gathers 12 recent best practices in legal and institutional reform that exemplify promising methods of addressing mitigation, adaptation and finance at the domestic level. Several of these best practices involve reform to facilitate engagement with mechanisms under the UNFCCC multilateral regime.
