News and Announcements

In January 2019, APCEL and Climate Law co-organized a workshop on the rules and modalities implementing the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (the Paris Rulebook). This culminated in a Special Issue on the Paris Rulebook published as Volume 9(1-2) of Climate Law.

Between 2nd and 14th December 2018, APCEL sent 4 students as part of the NUS student delegation to attend the COP24 held in Katowice, Poland as observers. This COP was regarded as crucial for setting in stone a rulebook to advance the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Carol Yuen (‘19), Eric Bea (‘19), Jamie Lee (‘20) and Sarah Lu (‘21) write about their experiences at COP24.Report
