Professor Minas Co-authored New Articles on Climate Law and Policy
As the world’s governments meet in Poland to finalise the rules for implementing the Paris Agreement on climate change, new articles co-authored by STL Assistant Professor Stephen Minas in leading journals of climate law and policy analyze key aspects of Paris Agreement governance.
The article “Probing the hidden depths of climate law: Analysing national climate change legislation” is published in the Review of European, Comparative & International Environmental Law (RECIEL), co-authored by Professor Eloise Scotford (University College London) and Professor Minas. In this article, the authors examine the complexities of domestic climate legislation to implement the Paris Agreement, and propose a methodology for the development of climate legislation, to support both national planning and international cooperation.
The article “Resilience through interlinkage: the green climate fund and climate finance governance” is published in the Climate Policy journal, co-authored by Dr Megan Bowman (King’s College London) and Professor Minas. In this article, the authors analyze the governance of the Green Climate Fund established in 2010, and highlight opportunities for strengthening the Fund through greater engagement with the private sector and the UN’s climate Technology Mechanism.
Both articles are currently free-to-access without subscription, during the COP24 meeting.
