Room 229 A, Level 2
Tuesday 1 November (1430 - 1545)
African Regional Forum
SustainabilityFocusRuleOfLawThis session will consider what the world could (and should) learn from Africa when it comes to the regulation and implementation of sustainable development practices. Among other things, the panellists will reflect on the role that Africa's minerals resources will play in the green energy transition, the management of relationships with local and indigenous communities, governance and the consequences where the rule of law is disregarded, and finally, the need for collective action. By drawing on specific examples, the panellists will identify the legal mechanisms which governments, development finance institutions, civil society organisations, and the private sector have used to establish and promote sustainable practices. They will also consider instances where things went wrong and explore measures which should be put in place to prevent similar events from recurring.
SUSTAINABILITY FOCUS sessions marked as such are part of the IBA Annual Conference 2022 sustainability focus on Tuesday and Thursday, grouping sessions discussing different aspects of ESG and sustainability across the different legal fields.
