Professional expertise/areas of expertise: Cameron Kelly is an Australian environmental practitioner with formal qualifications in both environmental science and law, having practised in both areas over the past 10 years. In 2003, Mr Kelly was invited to complete a Research Fellowship with UNEP's Convention for the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) (Bonn, Germany) in which he compiled a paper for the 12th meeting of the Convention's Scientific Council; the paper provided both the Secretariat and Scientific Body with strategic guidance regarding global impact assessment (including those impacts associated with climate change) and migratory species of wild animals.
In 2004, the Global Climate Change Practice Group of Baker McKenzie solicitors (in conjunction with the UK's Renewable Energy International Law Project) invited Mr Kelly to compile two papers for the 2004 International Conference on Renewable Energy (Bonn). These papers addressed perceived international legal barriers to the UNFCCC's Clean Development Mechanism, as well as barriers in international law to the development of renewable energy.
More recently, Mr Kelly has provided advice to Baker McKenzie's Global Climate Change group on the effectiveness of global emissions trading schemes.
