The IPCC has issued its new climate change report, sounding the alarm on the climate crisis once again. For the first time, in its analysis of national and sub-national policies and institutions, the IPCC discusses the impact of climate change litigation on shaping climate governance. Climate litigation has become a significant legal trend in the climate change law arena and C2LI Founder and Director Dr. Francesco Sindico, along with C2LI Deputy Director Kate McKenzie are cited in the IPCC’s newest report on Mitigation of Climate Change. Francesco and Kate co-authored Climate Change Litigation and the Individual: An Overview (along with C2LI Co-Director Professor Makane Moïse Mbengue of the University of Geneva), which is the opening chapter of the book co-edited by Francesco Sindico and Dr. Mbengue, “Comparative Climate Change Litigation: Beyond the Usual Suspects” on which C2LI is based. Other C2LI members’ work was also cited in the report, including publications by Legal Analysts Lennart Wegener, Esmeralda Colombo, Juan Auz, and Co-Director Jolene Lin.
