Climate Change, Coming Soon to a Court Near You: Report Series Purpose and Introduction to Climate Science

Report 1 guides readers through some of the basics about climate change as a defining challenge of our time. It further explains how judges from Asia and the Pacific contribute to climate governance and litigation.

Without urgent climate action, humanity faces a world that cannot sustain civilization as we know it. People around the globe are demanding action, some with climate litigation. This report is the first in a four-part series that ADB produced in recognition of the inevitability of increased litigation in the era of climate change.
