Abstract

This article provides an overview of the recent developments in three high-profile climate change human rights litigation cases: Urgenda, Teitoita and Juliana. There has been a proliferation of research and rights-based litigation relating to climate change. Understanding these landmark judgments, the challenges and opportunities ahead is important as we enter into a period of increasing climate change related litigation in jurisdictions across the world. Many of these cases have a particular human rights dimension.
