A high-level dialogue between Chief Justices, Supreme Court Justices and experts in exploring approaches and solutions to climate change-related disputes arising before domestic courts across the globe. Climate Change is a global issue that requires the attention and action of institutions and stakeholders at every level around the world. An important element of this effort is the role of national and international Courts, often tasked with deciding disputes with complex temporal and spatial environmental ramifications. The session is envisaged as a knowledge-sharing platform where Supreme Court Justices and senior Judges of various jurisdictions can build on varied experiences in managing and resolving disputes involving climate change.

Organizers: UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and Global Judicial Institute on the Environment (GJIE)

In cooperation with the International Association of Judges (IAJ), the Government of Brazil and the European Union Forum of Judges for the Environment (EUFJE), in partnership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature World Commission on Environmental Law (IUCN WCEL).
