The Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, in collaboration with UNEP, has launched the Peer Review Network of Global Climate Litigation as part of continuing efforts to update and maintain the Global Climate Change Litigation database. The Peer Review Network includes practitioners and scholars who will act as “national rapporteurs” on climate change litigation in their countries. The Network connects the rapporteurs to one another and engages them in ongoing conversations about new developments, emerging trends, analytical approaches, and applied research relating to climate change litigation. A key purpose of the network is to ensure that the Sabin Center’s database captures important litigation emerging from jurisdictions across the globe, and is comprehensive and up to date.
Members of the Peer Review Network are recognized on the Sabin Center’s website, and become part of a network engaged in tracking, analyzing, and conducting climate change litigation. In addition, members contribute to the Sabin Center’s Climate Law blog and participate in a series of talks and an annual virtual conference.
As of December 16th, 2021, the Network includes 28 national rapporteurs covering 24 countries. The Sabin Center is actively seeking volunteers to represent countries which are currently not represented by members of the Peer Review Network. If you would like to join the Network and represent one of the jurisdictions, please fill out this form.
