SustainabilityFocusHumanRightsThe session will explore the current regulatory framework for sustainable and responsible investment in agriculture and how this can contribute to the mitigation of the climate crisis. It will explore how lawyers in the private and public sectors can use a variety of legal tools including environmental and human rights law to promote sustainable and responsible investment in agriculture within their national contexts.

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.

Advancing Land-based Investment Governance (ALIGN) supports governments, civil society, local communities and other relevant actors in strengthening the governance of land-based investments. The project is implemented by a consortium led by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), the Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) and Namati, and is funded with UK aid from the UK government. Some of this webinar material has been produced as part of ALIGN by CCSI and IIED, however the views expressed do not necessarily reflect the official views or policies of ALIGN partners or the UK Government.
