We would like to let you know that Christoph Schwarte will be leaving LRI in January 2023.

We are grateful to Christoph for all his hard work and the significant expertise he contributed to the work of LRI over the last 10 years, helping the organisation to become the highly respected source of knowledge and support in efforts to level the playing field for LDCs and other low-income developing country parties in the international climate negotiations under the UNFCCC.

As the international rule making is now substantially complete and work under the Paris Agreement shifting towards national implementation, LRI will in the future increasingly broaden its focus to include helping climate vulnerable developing countries, in particular the LDCs, with capacity-building and law and policy making at the national level. Christoph has decided to take on new challenges outside the LRI, but will be continuing to work towards climate justice. We wish him well.

The LRI board
