CASELAP Faculty Dr. Robert Kibugi was recently invited and travelled to Bonn, Germany for a Global Strategy meeting of Experts, to review and strategies on how to improve the effectiveness of environmental law. The meeting, convened by the IUCN Environmental Law Programme, brought together environmental law experts drawn from leading universities across the world. 

Dr Kibugi and Prof Anel du Plessis (North-West University of South Africa) were the two representatives from Africa.

Other participating global universities were: National University of Singapore (Prof Koh Kheng Lian), University of New England (Australia) - Prof Paul Martin, University of Costa Rica - as well as expert representation from various expert departments of IUCN programmes. 

While this meeting marked the beginning of a long journey of research collaboration, experts in attendance identified a number of key aspects pertinent to enhancing the effectiveness of environmental law. This includes paying attention to diagnosing the causes of ineffectiveness, methodology for design of law, among other aspects. A report on the strategy meeting will be circulated in due course.
