This is the fourth session in a monthly series focusing on Global Environmental Rule of Law.

Join the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Environmental Law Institute and expert panelists for the fourth part of UNEP-ELI series on the UNEP  Environmental Rule of Law: Tracking Progress and Charting Future Directions report. The recent challenges and advancements of environmental rule of law can be categorized under four general themes: development and use of technology; COVID-19; climate change; and social and environmental justice. In this fourth installment of the series, we will discuss how climate change has affected the environmental rule of law.

Climate change is the subject of increased public recognition and concern, as well as a wave of policymaking. The proliferation of reporting on climate change impacts has accompanied growing public awareness of the problem. Concerns about climate change have driven much of the recent development, implementation, and enforcement of laws and regulations. Since 2019, countries around the world have adopted new climate laws and regulations, and at least 34 have declared climate emergencies and seen litigation, which has been both a context for and a driver of environmental rule of law. Our panelists will discuss the many ways in which climate change is impacting the environmental rule of law and how it will continue to drive future rulemaking.
