Biography

Soibi’s thesis employs a socio-legal method to investigate and proffer optimal pathways for encouraging and promoting effective transfer of climate change technologies to developing countries, with a focus on the path of China and Nigeria. This is because despite the recent global and multi-lateral agreements on climate change, studies have shown about 30 percent of technology transfer of clean technologies are recorded in developing countries. Soibi aims to explore the nexus between social development, protection of intellectual property rights and global response to climate change.  Other aspects of academic research which falls within the threshold of Soibi’s research interests, includes legal aspects of the transfer of low-carbon technologies, standardised protection of intellectual property rights and polycentricity of climate governance.
