UN Report on Climate Litigation Released

March 05, 2021

In January, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) published a summary of the status and trends in climate change litigation, in cooperation with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law titled, ‘Global Climate Litigation Report: 2020 Status Review’ (the UNEP Report).

The UNEP Report updates the previous version published in 2017, noting that since that time, climate cases have nearly doubled from 884 cases to 1550 cases. See our article on the UNEP Report, current trends in climate change litigation, and predictions for future trends.
