PREPARATION OF A DRAFT CONVENTION ON PANDEMICS by the International Centre for Comparative Environmental Law (CIDCE) in partnership with the Normandy Chair for Peace and the Global Pandemic Network (GPN)
From 29 November to 1 December 2021, a special session of the World Health Assembly took place to consider the development of a convention or other international instrument on pandemic preparedness and response.
In support of this initiative, the International Centre for Comparative Environmental Law (CIDCE) set up a team of legal experts coordinated by Michel Prieur, President of CIDCE, which prepared a draft convention on pandemics that was posted on the CIDCE website on 9 December 2021.
CIDCE led this work in partnership with the Normandy Chair for Peace, which arranged the meetings of the legal experts, and the Global Pandemic Network (GPN), which spearheaded the development of a rationale for the draft convention.
