The Australian Centre for Climate and Environmental Law at Sydney Law School invites you to its inaugural 'Year in Review Conference' on 24 February 2017, at our conveniently located premises in the Sydney CBD.

This event will bring together practitioners, academics, members of the NGO sector, government officials and students to hear about the implications of key developments in Climate and Environmental Law in 2016. These developments have implications going forward including in 2017.

Leading practitioners and academics will analyse and provide insights into major developments in 2016 which are of particular interest to practitioners, policymakers and academics.

Topics include legislative reforms to the New South Wales coastal management and biodiversity regimes, recent planning initiatives for Sydney, including the Greater Sydney Commission's District Plans, the new Wind Energy Planning Framework, and major cases, including challenges to the Carmichael and Shenhua Watermark coal mining projects, and the role of the courts in implementing the Paris Agreement.
