During the week-long workshop, the project taskforce will draft the Strategy Paper for the Climate Change & Environmental Law Centre by seeking inputs and comments from various relevant agencies taking part in the consultative workshop. The workshop also expects to explore and forge possible and potential partners and collaborations with those stakeholders depending on our mutual interest. Further, this workshop is intended to provide a common platform to all relevant stakeholders to share their roles in the field of climate change, and to discuss how these stakeholders can effectively collaborate in maximizing the common targeted outcome through collective efforts; strengthening the Law School and the Centre’s networks and collaboration with relevant stakeholders within the country.
