The IUCN Academy of Environmental Law and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) launched a university-level course on “Compliance and Enforcement of Multilateral Environmental Agreements” in December 2010. Recognizing that MEAs will only be effective if they are properly implemented and enforced, the two organizations have worked together to create these materials. You can access the full set of PowerPoint slides and a lecturer’s manual on the Academy website.

The primary target for the course is law students, as well as students of international relations, environmental management and other disciplines related to the study of the environment.

The IUCN Academy would like to acknowledge the work of many scholars and experts around the world who contributed to the development of this course.

We would welcome your comments about the materials at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


It gives us great pleasure to invite you to register for the Colloquium and to visit South Africa in July 2011, and we hope that you are as excited about attending the Colloquium as we are!

Abstracts have been submitted, most were accepted, and we anticipate that the quality of papers presented is going to be very high. This will be the first year in which the Colloquium is hosted jointly by four universities, instead of by just one, and we accordingly selected a venue in an area which is seldom visited but is truly special – we are convinced that its unique biodiversity and fascinating cultural history will enhance the Colloquium.

After registering, we suggest that you continue to log in regularly to this website as we will be updating it with details of activities, the programme, excursions, and so forth. We have prepared several tours as integral parts of the Colloquium and believe that these will make the Colloquium a practical as well as an academic experience.

On a practical note, please register for the 2011 Colloquium at
