LRI’s first board meeting of the year 2023 took place with its three new trustees at the table: Dr. Alina Averchenkova (LSE/Grantham Research Inst.), Birsha Ohdedar (SOAS) and Jannis Bille (Herbert Smith Freehills).

LRI continues to provide legal support and assistance in and around the international climate change negotiations. At the same time, it is broadening its focus to mirror the work under the Paris Agreement, which is shifting towards national implementation. As part of this strategic shift, the organisation will continue working with climate vulnerable developing countries, in particular the Least Developing Countries, to strengthen their capacity to respond to the climate challenge and support them in their efforts in law and policy making at the national level.
