About the Climate Law and Governance Knowledge Centre

This platform is aimed at sharing ideas and supporting the development of law-making and institutional capacity support on global efforts to address climate change and implement the Paris Agreement. It focuses both on domestic, international, and non-state actor responses to the legal and institutional reform challenges posed by the realities of climate change.

The resources and articles featured across the CLGI Knowledge Centre is a selection based on the work of legal researchers at the Climate Law Governance Initiative, of some of the best open access online resources currently available.
