Global Mondays Weekly Lecture Series - Transnational environmental law and Conservation Contracts

William H. Gates Hall

12:30 PM - 1:20 PM

“Bargaining for Biodiversity”
Dr. Natasha Affolder, Associate Dean Research and International, University of British Columbia - Faculty of Law

Hosted by Environmental Law Society, Environmental Law Initiatives and UW Canadian Studies Center

This talk explores the quiet ascendancy of transnational environmental contracts as a mechanism to protect habitats and species. The diverse and proliferating examples of conservation contracts such as forest carbon agreements, conservation concessions, debt-for-nature swaps, conservation performance payments, and private protected area agreements – reveal an ongoing and intensifying transnational attempt to use private contracts to address some of the most pressing issues of common concern.

Professor Affolder is an Associate Professor at the UBC Faculty of Law. She is a Faculty Associate at the Liu Institute for Global Issues and the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies. Prior to joining UBC, Professor Affolder practiced law in private practice in Boston, Massachusetts and held a Research Associate position in the area of large project negotiation at Harvard Business School. She has also worked in various capacities for international non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations including Oxfam and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
