Tackling climate change has become one of society’s key challenges, and increasing public awareness has triggered a rapid increase in litigation on climate change issues. Around the globe, states and private parties are facing all kinds of action, ranging from claims for climate change-related damages, to applications for injunctions aimed at reducing CO2 emissions.
In this Master Class on Friday, 24 January 2020, Nicolien van den Biggelaar, Dennis Horeman and René van Tricht will discuss recent developments on climate change laws and litigation in the Netherlands. They examine the Dutch Supreme Court’s ruling in Urgenda v. State of the Netherlands, the most prominent climate change case in the Netherlands so far. They also explore the core issues that arise in climate change litigation between private parties, and they provide practical guidance on how to prepare for any potential climate change-related claims.
