Visiting Fellow

Eric Bea

Research Assistant



Eric is a graduate of NUS Law (LLB, Class of 2019).  While a student, Eric was a Vice-President, and later, Advisor to the President, in the Environmental Law Students Association (ELSA), an NUS Law interest group which seeks to encourage students to get involved in environmental law and policy. He was also part of the student delegation who attended the COP24 conference in Katowice, Poland as observers, and recorded their experience in their report titled, ’Reflections on COP24, Katowice 2018’. He is a keen advocate for awareness of environmental impact amongst youth, and is a contributor to the Climate Change and Negotiations Training Workshop for Youth and Educators in Singapore. 


Eric’s research will focus on the making of international climate change law, following the developments of the Paris Agreement’s modalities, procedures, and guidance, with a specific focus on the sustainable development mechanism.  He will also look at ways for international law to respond to the global scarcity of water brought on by climate change and market forces leading to the erosion of the right to water.  He will continue to support capacity-building programmes for Singaporean youth and young professionals, with other partners in Singapore’s environment scene.
