TTT Country Focal Points Virtual Meeting

TTT Country Focal Points Virtual Meeting

ADB’s TTT Country Focal Points (CFPs) comprising senior professors from 12 countries across Asia convened on 25 October for a 3rd Virtual Roundtable to discuss developments around environmental and climate change laws and legal education. They shared their efforts to safeguard environmental laws as their countries recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, including actions against increased plastic pollution, and projects posing large-scale deforestation and disaster-risks. 

These CFPs were part of an initial cohort of senior professors from 14 countries –ADB brought together in 2015 to improve environmental law teaching in the region. They have since led in-country training programs and networks, improved environmental and climate law curriculums, and work closely together on knowledge sharing initiatives.
