Session XII: Experts Panel: Developing the International Climate Regime through Conciliation and Compensation
Hosted by International Council for Commercial Arbitration ICCA; Climate Change Counsel; Centre for Climate Justice Bangladesh (CCJ-B)
How can new mechanisms complement in the Paris Agreement regime progress climate-related objectives? Addressing the context, methodology, and key considerations; how could a new conciliation mechanism support the sustained collaboration and cooperation necessary to effectively address climate change? What is the balance of competing interests in the Draft Conciliation Annex, for example between disputing States, non-disputing States, and other third parties such as NGOs, and what is the Draft’s approach to transparency versus confidentiality? What lessons can be learned from recent progress in the regime to define a response fund for loss and damage, and what more remains to be done for global climate compensation or restitution?
