Climate Change Litigation in Brazil
A webinar organised by the Climate Change Litigation Initiative (C2LI) in collaboration with the LSE Grantham Institute on Climate Change and the Environment.
Brazil has experienced a surge in climate litigation over the last year. This webinar will provide timely insights into both past and current climate cases and share lessons from litigation in Brazil. The webinar will be of interest to practitioners, researchers, policy makers, civil society members and wider climate change related stakeholders interested in better understanding developments in climate litigation.

This webinar is part of a wider series of events that C2LI is planning between November 2020 and COP 26 in November 2021 when C2LI will be formally launched. The webinar will be delivered in English, but, in the week after the event, C2LI will share insights and highlights from the webinar in Spanish.
The Climate Change Litigation Initiative (C2LI) stems from the book “Comparative Climate Change Litigation: Beyond the Usual Suspects” that will soon be published by Springer and will provide a wide range of users (judges, individuals, NGOs, (public interest) law firms, researchers, media) with information about climate litigation in 30 countries. C2LI is led by the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance (SCELG), the University of Geneva Faculty of Law and the National University of Singapore Asia-Pacific Centre for Environmental Law (APCEL). C2LI will be launched at COP 26 in Glasgow in 2021.
