Spring 2022 marks the thirtieth anniversary of the adoption of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change. During the past thirty years, how has the UN climate change regime performed? How has it evolved? Has progress been made in addressing climate change? What lessons have we learned? And what are the regime's prospects going forward? This lecture will address these and other questions about the UN climate regime at age 30, including a personal retrospective.
