ONLINE OPEN ONLINE OPEN #Investment arbitration #World


Presentation

In a world grappling with the complexities of today's legal landscape, from the Paris-alignment to scope 3 emissions and the intricate acronyms of the EU Green Deal, how can we effectively align investment protection with climate action?

Our webinar offers an in-depth and timely analysis of the interconnectedness between international investment law, climate law, and human rights law, with a specific focus on regional perspectives from Africa, LATAM, the Middle East, and Asia. While the mission to combat Climate Change is global, the impact varies significantly across different regions, each facing its own unique challenges, regulatory pace, and visions for the future.

The scrutiny of both governmental and corporate behaviors regarding climate change and sustainability is growing more rigorous. Regardless of their industry, companies are facing a multifaceted array of risks related to climate change, encompassing physical, transitional, legal, regulatory, financial, and reputational dimensions.

How are climate change-induced economic shifts and evolving legal frameworks impacting both governmental and corporate entities ? Why is it increasingly important for parties to consider dispute resolution strategies, particularly in the context of climate change and sustainability, and how does arbitration offer a viable solution for resolving such disputes? Our speakers will delve into how dispute resolution can advance efforts to tackle climate change, addressing the imperative to address global inequalities and combat global warming.

Engage with us in discussions surrounding key procedural issues and the delicate balance between treaty-based investment protection and states’ inherent right—or duty—to regulate in the public interest.

Join us to gain valuable insights, as we present concrete ideas for arbitrators, counsel, and policymakers on addressing climate-related issues in investment arbitration from diverse perspectives. Discover how to elevate your expertise, stay ahead of the curve, and position yourself as a pioneering force in climate-conscious legal practice.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Amel Makhlouf.

- Professor Emilia Onyema (opening remarks)
- Jonathan Ripley-Evans (covering the African region)
