Addressing the urgency of climate change and the foundational role of international agreements like the Paris Agreement of 2015, countries are urged to adopt concrete domestic measures. Beyond the realms of international directives, the evolution of 'climate law' encompasses various sectors, including administrative, commercial, human rights, and more. As nations worldwide adopt distinctive models for this, such as the UK, France, and the USA, understanding these shifts becomes paramount. This panel's primary focus is to assemble legal experts to extensively explore the intricacies and challenges of climate law and its domestic implications, particularly emphasizing the path toward achieving Net Zero.
