Climate change poses grave development challenges to Kenya, Africa and the whole world. It is now widely recognized as the major environmental problem facing the globe.
To this end, the Centre for Advanced Studies in Environmental Law and Policy (CASELAP) and the School of Law recently held a public lecture on climate change titled “Climate Change and Indigenous Peoples: The Search for Legal Remedies.” The lecture is part of the annual lecture series organized by CASELAP which began three years ago, as part of an intellectual focus on environmental matters.
The distinguished speaker, Prof. Randall S. Abate, a scholar from Florida A&M University, spoke on the vast effects of climate change, how indigenous people are affected and the laws and initiatives put in place to protect this group of people.
