Climate Discourse Podcast: Episode 13 – Timo Leiter: Climate Change Adaptation and the Paris Agreement

In this special episode of Climate Discourse, Kate speaks with Timo Leiter about Climate Change Adaption and the Paris Agreement.
For our first episode of 2023, Kate speaks with Timo Leiter about his recent CCLR article, ‘Too Little, Too Slow? Climate Adaptation at the United Nations Climate Change Negotiations Since the Adoption of the Paris Agreement’. Timo takes the opportunity to provide further context and background on his framework for tracking and assessing negotiation outcomes, explains how the negotiations have evolved and identifies adaptation related gaps that can be addressed at a global level.


About CCLR

As climate law and policies evolve around the globe, attention is shifting from their conceptual design to the challenges of implementation. Where theoretical concerns once dominated, legal professionals are now called upon to ensure smooth operation of the regulatory framework. Law provides the requisite framework to structure deals in climate finance and the carbon market, anchor adaptation requirements in land use and disaster planning rules, structure mitigation efforts such as REDD+, or balance the risks and opportunities of emerging technologies such as geoengineering and carbon capture and sequestration.

Aims & Scope

Published on a quarterly basis under the guidance of a distinguished editorial board, CCLR brings together representatives from the legal discipline and other stakeholders in one specialised journal, allowing them to engage in a dynamic debate on the law of climate change.

Topics covered by the journal include:

  • emissions trading,
  • clean development mechanism,
  • climate change,
  • climate regulatory & policy framework,
  • Carbon Dioxide Capture & Storage (CCS),
  • greenhouse gases,
  • Reducing Emissions from Deforestation & Degradation (REDD).

CCLR's Target Audience

CCLR is aimed at anyone with an interest in the legal aspects of climate change mitigation and adaptation. This includes, but is not limited to, areas such as emissions trading, regulatory and policy developments and international climate negotiations. As such, CCLR acts as a forum for practitioners, legal experts and academics working in the field.

CCLR's Structure

Responding to the demand for a discussion forum on these issues, the Carbon & Climate Law Review strikes a balance between the interests of practitioners and a more doctrinal focus, alternating legal policy recommendations with timely articles on climate policy and on the legal aspects of climate change mitigation and adaptation. A section on current developments updates readers on recent developments, political decisions, new literature and relevant events. Most importantly, however, the Carbon & Climate Law Review brings together representatives from the legal discipline and other stakeholders in one specialised journal, allowing them to engage in a dynamic debate on climate law and policy.
