This public Leverhulme Lecture and Dialogue explores post-pandemic law and policy innovation for the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Complex, inter-linked ‘wicked problems’ of climate change, drought and hunger; terrestrial and marine ecosystem collapse and species extinction; and world health pandemics, among others, have been signalled by scientists and civil society, with increasing urgency, for decades.

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a global agenda for the achievement of international treaty obligations but also economic recovery coming out of the COVID -19 pandemic.

Governments are spending billions pandemic recovery. How could this finance foster and not frustrate global sustainability.

Join us for an insightful event chaired by Professor Stephen J. Toope, Vice-Chancellor, University of Cambridge and hosted by Professor Diane Coyle, Co-Director, Bennett Institute for Public Policy.

This Public Lecture provided will be provided by Professor Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger, Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor, University of Cambridge, Senior Director, Centre for International Sustainable Development Law (CISDL), Executive Secretary, UNFCCC CoP26 Climate Law and Governance Initiative, and Full Professor of Law, School of Environment, Entrepreneurship & Development, University of Waterloo
