Public Interest Network at USD presents discussion of the Bali Climate Conference
International environmental law is among the several course Professor Burleson teaches at USD School of Law. Prior to coming to USD, she began participating in treaty negotiations at the United Nations in 1991 during proceedings for the United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development. She has written reports as a United Nations consultant and delivered presentations at United Nations conferences. The discussion is open to the public with a question and answer session to follow the conclusion of Burleson's presentation.
The conference at the Bali International Convention Centre and hosted by the Indonesian government brought together more than 10,000 participants, including representatives from more than 180 countries. Along with observers from intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations and the media, the Bali Climate Conference culminated in the adoption of the Bali roadmap, an initiative that will chart the course for a new international negotiating process (to be concluded by 2009) that will ultimately lead to a post-2012 agreement on climate change.
