Climate ambition in countries around the world remains inadequate to meet the challenges of climate change. As a result, climate litigation cases have become increasingly more frequent, numerous, and diverse. The UNEP Global Climate Litigation Report: 2020 Status Review provides an overview of the current state of climate change litigation, as well as a fresh assessment of global climate change litigation trends. As part of the ongoing partnership with UNEP and in an effort to ensure the database is comprehensive, the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law announced the launch of the Peer Review Network of Global Climate Litigation, which is composed of volunteer rapporteurs representing their jurisdiction and reporting on climate litigation for the Global Climate Litigation Database.
In April 2022, the Sabin Center and UNEP will hold an Annual Conference on the Global Climate Litigation. The conference will address key themes on global climate litigation and feature several members of the Peer Review Network and invited speakers. Please register and join us on April 19-20, 2022.
