Asia-Pacific Judicial Conference on Climate Change: Adjudication in the Time of COVID-19 (Day 2)


The first technical session of the conference, on Climate Change, Sustainable Habitats, and Zoonosis, will begin with the scientific context of zoonosis – providing the background of the current pandemic. This will be followed by an analysis of how pandemics can be averted through ecosystem resilience and promoting environmental rights and justice.

The second technical session - Judicial Techniques: Adapting to the “Smart Normal”- will explore how judges and legal practitioners can cope during these times. The presentations will explore access to justice issues during the pandemic, including the issues associated with “virtual” courtrooms, while discussing judicial challenges and innovative solutions.
