This is the key event of the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA).

A panel is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 23, 9:00 am ET, and is titled: COVID-19 and Climate Change: A Setback or Strengthening the Resolve to Move Forward?

The panel will focus on the current challenges of climate change policies. Specifically, it will assess the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic for treaties on climate change, international refugees, and climate litigation.
