The webinar marked the launch of ‘Climate Change Laws of the World’ (formerly ‘the Global Climate Legislation Study). This is the most comprehensive climate change legislation and litigation online knowledge resource, designed for legislators, policymakers, scholars and law professionals. The resource covers over 1,200 climate change laws and policies in 164 countries, and over 250 climate litigation cases from 25 countries. It is the fruit of a partnership between the Grantham Research Institute at the London School of Economics and the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School.
