Web launch and quiz – Guide to the Paris Agreement


Under the umbrella of the European Capacity Building Initiative (ecbi), we have published a new Guide to the Paris Agreement

In 160 pages, the Guide describes the scope, structure and content of the Agreement in easily accessible language. It also contains an introduction to the UNFCCC process, the provisions of the Agreement, short summaries of potential implications for domestic law and policy in the developing countries as well as a comprehensive index.

We wanted to officially launch the Guide during the meeting of UNFCCC subsidiary bodies in Bonn from 1 to 11 June. But because of the postponement of the Bonn session (due to the Covid-19 pandemic) we will now have a web-based launch on Tuesday 26 May at 2 pm GMT. You can join us at: https://primetime.bluejeans.com/a2m/live-event/pucarbcv

The event will start at 14:00 GMT. That is 9 am Central Daylight Time (CDT) – 10 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) – 15:00 British Summer Time (BST) – 16:00 Central African Time (CAT) – 16:00 Central European Summer Time (CEST) – 19:30 Indian Standard Time (IST) – 22:00 China Standard Time (CST) & 22:00 Australian Western Standard Time (AWST).

Part of the launch will be an informal quiz about the Paris Agreement. Presenters include contributors to the Guide as well as Kishan Kumarsingh who co-chaired UNFCCC working group that developed the Paris Agreement from 2013-2014.

At the end of each short presentation the speaker will ask the audience one question. You can send the correct answers to enquiries@legalresponse.org The 25 first (correct) answers will receive a free hard copy of the Guide by mail.
