A hefty new report (109 pages) has arrived from the United Nations
Environment Program (July 27, 2023) in conjunction with the Sabin Center for
Climate Change Law at Columbia Climate School (Columbia Law School). It is
entitled “Global Climate Litigation: 2023 Status Review” and updates two
previous editions (2017 and 2020). The report surveys domestic and
international climate rights cases happening around the world, including
issues like the right to a healthy environment, human rights, vulnerable
groups claims, keeping fossil fuels in the ground, environmental impact
assessment, transnational responsibility, corporate liability and
responsibility, financial institutions’ responsibility, adaptation,
disclosure, greenwashing, backlash cases, and future trends.
