While countries are still negotiating international responses to climate change, many have also embarked on domestic action to implement their commitments under the Paris Agreement. This process often includes reviewing and enhancing domestic legal frameworks. In collaboration with UNEP, LRI is supporting these efforts through a new web-based climate legislation advice portal.
