What are the legal obligations of governments – not just under Article 12 of the Paris Agreement but international, regional and national laws – to implement the six areas of the UN’s Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE): education, training, public awareness, public participation, access to information and international cooperation on climate change?
This report takes a deep dive into legal frameworks that could be used to compel governments to carry out public engagement activities. Why does this matter? It is difficult to compel governments to act if there are no consequences for inaction.
The legal analysis in this report was conducted and written by global law firm DLA Piper. Climate Outreach provided editorial support and wrote the executive summary.
