Impacts of Environment and Justice for All

The underprivileged, the vulnerable, and the poor suffer the most from the impacts of environmental degradation and climate change. Concerned citizens have rushed to the courts to protect their rights, and to hold governments, individuals, and businesses accountable. The Impacts of Environment and Justice for All project addresses environmental justice and climate justice issues by developing the capacity of first instance, appellate, and Supreme Court judges in Asia to handle such cases. It also assists country judiciaries in enhancing access mechanisms through establishment of 'green courts', development of rules of procedure for environmental cases, and building a strong regional network for environmental governance.
