Online & in-person event: Global Trends in Climate Litigation
Date & time: 30 June, 18:30 - 20:00
This event will mark the launch of the Grantham Research Institute’s 2022 Global Trends in Climate Change Litigation Policy Report.
This annual report – which has been published regularly since 2017 – provides an overview of the state of the art of climate litigation and highlights recent developments and recommendations for action. The event will begin with a short presentation from authors Joana Setzer and Catherine Higham on the findings of the Grantham Research Institute’s 2022 Global Trends in Climate Change Litigation Policy Report. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion, with four distinguished experts in the field. Panellists will be asked to react to the report and to draw out key aspects from their own experience in the field. The report is based on data in the Climate Change Laws of the World database which has a user base of nearly 200,000 users a year. Users include policy-makers from national legislatures, environment ministries, and central banks among many others.
