IMEL was pleased to host Dr Matteo Fermeglia, Assistant Professor in International and European Environmental Law and Post-Doctoral Assistant at Hasselt University, Faculty of Law, who is collaborating with us on a North-South comparative law project titled SDG Governance. The project acknowledges that effective governance systems are key to addressing the global threat of climate change while ensuring equality and justice across society. Given that the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for governance systems that embrace ecological integrity, sustainability and human rights as pillars of their core functioning and development before 2030, the project seeks to tease out whether and, if so, how, the SDGs are contributing to good climate governance, adopting a comparative methodology. Matteo spent a week visiting IMEL to develop the project with Associate Professor Melanie Murcott. During his visit, Matteo gave a guest lecture on trade and the environment to students in the LLM programme in Environmental Law, in the International Environmental Law course. The lecture featured a valuable group exercise on climate issues and trade.
