Message from Professor-In-Charge

Dear Colleagues

It gives me immense pleasure to announce   that Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi, Delhi, a premier legal institution, is organizing an International Conference from 25-27 April 2014. The theme for the conference is: Mitigation of Climate Change: Law, Policy and Governance. The Sub Themes include: Understanding Climate Change Causes, Impact of Climate Change: Key Concerns, UNFCCC , Kyoto Protocol and beyond : Key Legal Issues, UNFCCC and International Environmental Principles, The Climate Change  and the International Trade Law, The Climate Change and Human Rights Law, Comparative / Domestic Climate Change Law and Policy etc.

For the last two decades, the international community has been bargaining about who will cut greenhouse gas emissions and at what rate. Recently in November 2013 COP at Warsaw, some developed countries went back on their emission reduction commitments and the principle of Common but Differentiated Responsibility between the developed and developing countries had been neglected. Thus it necessitates consideration of the progress and effect of Climate Change Law at various levels: international, regional and domestic.

Against this backdrop, Campus Law Centre, university of Delhi, takes pride in organizing a three day International Conference on “Mitigation of Climate Change: Law Policy and Governance”. It will offer a unique opportunity to the academia and policy makers and others to deliberate upon the issues to be discussed over there.

I look forward to welcome you at CLC in April 2014.

International Conference

On

Mitigation of Climate Change: Law, Policy and Governance

 

April 25-27, 2014

 

Venue: Campus Law Centre, University of Delhi, India

 

CAMPUS LAW CENTRE, UNIVESITY OF DELHI

It is a deep rooted legal institution of par excellence having glorious past of 90 years and a bright future ahead. Responding to new developments in legal education, it keeps introducing new subjects and concepts to professionally designed courses of study to make it more socially relevant. Thus, it is not only maintaining the existing high standards of legal education, but is also raising it to further heights. Qualitative teaching, moot-court competitions, campus placements, legal- aid services, regular discussions, and illustrious alumni are some of the features which have established CLC as a Centre of Excellence.

 

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

Mitigation of climate change is one of the most challenging environmental law issues these days. This is an issue that affects billions of people across the world. Uttrakhand’s recent disaster, in June 2013 in India, in which thousands of people lost their lives is also related to climate change- be it natural or  man-made disaster. As the devastating consequences of climate change result in mass loss of lives, desertification, glacier loss, extreme weather, and sea level rise etc, the problem is not only of any single nation but also of regional and global concern. The world has understood it now that human activity affecting environment  in one part of it can affect  another part of the globe – be it toxic pollutants from North America and  Europe  contaminating the Arctic or the greenhouse gases of the industrialized regions triggering droughts or the melting of glaciers in the less industrialized ones.

United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is an important outcome of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development, Rio de Janeiro, 1992. The UNFCCC’s ultimate goal is to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a “level that would prevent dangerous, anthropogenic interference with the climate system.” The Kyoto Protocol, helped in stipulating binding emission targets against 1990 level for the Annex I countries by June 2012.  In 2011, at COP 17 in Durban, the EU agreed to a second commitment period for the Kyoto Protocol (KP2), but there was no time to finalize all the rules.  In November 2012, at COP 18 second commitment period of KP2 was agreed upon at Doha.  In Doha, the rules for that second commitment period were finally agreed upon, allowing it to move forward for another eight-year period (2013-2020). With the new legal arrangements, these countries were made able to begin implementing their new commitments from January 1, 2013 without any gaps. November 2013 COP at Warsaw keeps governments on a track towards a universal climate agreement in 2015.  In the context of 2015, countries decided to initiate or intensify domestic preparation for their intended national contributions towards that agreement, which will come into force from 2020.

The history of, divisions within the international community and current negotiations concerning global climate change regulations are well-known. Though some progress has undoubtedly been achieved since 1992 in settling the global climate change negotiations, that progress has neither come easily nor without significant disagreement. For the last two decades, the international community has been bargaining about who will cut greenhouse gas emissions and at what rate. At Warsaw, some developed countries went back on their emission reduction commitments and  the principle of Common but Differentiated Responsibility between the developed and developing countries had been neglected. India made strong statements that the new agreement has to take poverty reduction into account, and that the poorer countries have a right to develop. Common but differentiated responsibility for the climate change cannot be phased out into equal responsibility. Thus it necessitates consideration of the progress and effect of Climate Change Law at various levels: international, regional and domestic.

Against this backdrop, Campus Law Centre, university of Delhi, a premier legal institution takes pride in organizing a three day International Conference on “Mitigation of Climate Change: Law Policy and Governance”. It will offer a unique opportunity to the academia and policy makers to deliberate upon the issues to be discussed over there. The international and national experts are invited to deliberate upon legal and policy matters related to climate change, alternative energy, global warming and natural resources etc.

Objectives of the Conference:

Objectives of the conference, inter alia are-

 i to address, through legal instruments, the climate change related environmental problems;

iii. to analyze current developments and trends in international climate law regime and to strengthen application of the principle of CBDR.

iv.  to analyze comparative/national laws in implementation of international environment law on climate change;

v.  to suggest ways and means to improve implementation of international and national climate change law.

About Delhi

 

Situated on bank of the river Yamuna, Delhi also known as the National Capital Territory of India is one of the fastest growing cities in India. Inhabited since the 6th century BC from the period of the Pandavas in the epic Mahabharata, the city is the site of Indraprastha. Throughout history since the Pandavas to the Mughals and finally the British, Delhi has served as the capital of several empires and kingdoms and so it is sometimes called the city of cities. The city was also the capital of the great Mauryan Emperor Ashoka (273 - 236 B C). The modern day Delhi is a cluster of seven cities built in different period of time by different emperors. The present Delhi is divided into eleven districts, out of which New Delhi is the capital of India. 

           

By the Constitution (Sixty-ninth Amendment) Act, 1991 the Union territory of Delhi was formally declared as the National Capital Territory. The Government of Delhi is headed by the Lieutenant Governor as the executive head. The elected Government of Delhi headed by a Chief Minister is given wide powers except law and order that remain with the central Government. It has its own High Court and Legislative Assembly.

 

Delhi is a city that bridges two different worlds. Old Delhi, once the capital of Islamic India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis (castle) and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi created by the British Raj is composed of spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. New Delhi was built by British architects Edwin Lutyens and Sir Herbert Baker in 1912 as the new capital of the British Raj and inaugurated on 13th February 1931 by Lord Irwin. The Victorian architecture now intermingles with the city's high rise buildings. Concrete flyovers built to ease the growing traffic are interspersed with well laid gardens, Mughal tombs, forts and monuments. New Delhi is the preferred starting point for the popular Golden Triangle tour that comprises of New Delhi, Jaipur and Agra.

The city also has rich and diverse cultures. One will find that the city is sprinkled with dazzling gems: captivating ancient monuments, fascinating museums and art galleries, architectural wonders, a vivacious performing-arts scene, fabulous eating places and bustling markets.
