IMEL Participates in Midterm Review of the UNEP Montevideo Programme IV
In July Prof Feris attended a Meeting of Eminent Legal Experts on the Midterm Review of the Montevideo Programme IV in New York. The meeting was convened by the secretariat of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to assess the progress, challenges and opportunities experienced or encountered by the international law community in the field of environmental law since 2010, in particular in the programme areas of the Montevideo Programme IV. In the light of that they considered important and emerging issues in the field of environmental law and priority areas for action by the international law community for the period up to 2020, bearing in mind the Montevideo Programme IV. The document emanating from this meeting will feed into the upcoming Midterm Review of Montevideo IV by senior government officials to be held in Montevideo, Uruguay from 7 to 11 September 2015.
