On 3/23/16 CE3 and the Coastal Resilience Center presented Beyond Paris: Compliance and Enforcement Considerations to Realize NDCs as part of CRC's Speaker Series. The Paris Agreement represents an innovative approach to addressing climate change through the adoption of Nationally Determined Contributions. Through their NDCs, countries have voluntarily committed to reducing greenhouse gases. Now that delegations have returned to their capitals, governments are developing approaches to achieve the emissions reductions necessary to meet their NDCs. In this lecture, Carl Bruch will highlight considerations for countries to promote compliance and enforcement with their domestic climate change laws and policies. He will examine past experiences with environmental compliance and enforcement, drawing lessons for countries as they seek to achieve the mitigation goals articulated in NDCs.
Carl Bruch is the Director of International Programs at the Environmental Law Institute, and the Managing Director of the International Network on Environmental Compliance and Enforcement (INECE), hosted by ELI.
