In recent years, many countries have passed climate laws. As COP26 approaches, it is worth taking forward a conversation on whether, and how, India should approach domestic climate legislation.

This webinar, informed by CPR’s recent concept note (https://cprindia.org/research/papers/features-climate-law), will bring to light the variety of forms that climate laws have assumed around the world. We will see how different models, particularly the South African, South Korean, UK and Irish varieties, are designed to tackle climate change in ways that maximise the efficacy and efficiency of climate action in their varied contexts. By considering the features and mechanisms of creative laws around the world, this webinar will seek to inform the design of a climate law that would best suit the Indian context.

This is the second webinar in a series that began by exploring the larger conceptual questions on what kind of things a climate change law ought to aim to achieve. The recording of the first webinar can be found here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYx8McXZJ-4&t=1502s), and its essay, here (https://cprindia.org/research/papers/principles-climate-legislation).
