The Role of Domestic Law in “Agreed Outcome with Legal Force”

Birgit Lode, Milan Dehnen


Assessing the Indian Interpretation of a Possible Durban Platform Outcome

With the Warsaw conference just behind us, and less than two years left for the drafting of an agreement intended to follow in the footsteps of the Kyoto Protocol, this article addresses the question how such a successor might look like, i.e., which legal form it might actually take, adhering to the requirements set out in the decision the parties to the UNFCCC adopted in Durban in 2011, establishing the so called Durban Platform. It focuses on the Indian interpretation of the Durban Platform, submitted in the aftermath of the 17th Conference of the Parties in Durban, which understands the notion “agreed outcome with legal force” as one including domestic law. Building on an overview of the relation between national and international law under the international Climate Change Regime, different options are systematically being developed and the possibility of a concrete outcome building on domestic law will be presented and evaluated.
