Cross-cutting Issues & Initiatives

Climate change cuts across law and policy domains, engaging governments, courts, businesses, scientists and others in multiple and overlapping ways. Our current cross-cutting efforts track and assess climate litigation, provide legal pathways to deep decarbonization, engage with cities to find legal answers to questions raised by policy innovations, provide pro bono legal representation to supporters of utility-scale renewable energy projects, advance research on legal issues associated with carbon management and negative emissions technologies, explore how legal tools can be used to drive recognition of climate risk and resilience by corporate actors and others, as well as to advance climate and environmental justice.
