IUCN (World Conservation Union) Academy of Environmental Law

The IUCN Academy of Environmental Law is hosted by the Faculty of Law of the University of Ottawa. It focuses on research and teaching of environmental law mainly by encouraging the development of collaborative research programmes between member institutions. This involves inter-disciplinary research on the operation and development of environmental law, as well as conference and publication activities designed to stimulate the exchange and dissemination of environmental law research.

The Academy promotes teaching capacities in environmental legal education in universities and related institutions, such as the United Nations Environment Programme, focusing on developing countries and economies in transition. This involves the preparation of environmental law curricula, the conduct of ?training the trainers programmes?, the development of electronic teaching materials, on-line teaching, and other forms of web-based learning. Furthermore, the Academy organises regularly events and conferences on topics related to International Environmental Law (IEL).
