CREEL Book Launch with Professor Philippe Sands QC
Level 9, Room 924 (Common Room)
185 Pelham Street
CREEL is delighted to announce the launch of a new book by MLS academics Professor Lee Godden, Professor Kirsty Gover, Associate Professor Maureen Tehan and Associate Professor Margaret Young: 'The Impact of Climate Mitigation on Indigenous and Forest Communities: International, National and Local Law Perspectives on REDD+' See more details.
The book analyses the international legal framework for valuing the carbon stored in forests, known as 'Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation' (REDD+), which is established by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement. The authors show how REDD+ will impact the indigenous and local communities who inhabit, use or claim rights to forested lands, and seek to provide a systemic account of the relevant laws governing forest carbon sequestration and their interaction.
Professor Philippe Sands QC, who is visiting Melbourne from UCL and Matrix Chambers will launch the book at a small reception before his public lecture at the Melbourne Law School on Tuesday 20th February 2018. We will meet in Room 924, on Level 9 of the Law School, from 5pm – 6pm that day.
