Meetings in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, with the participation of iCS, discussed strategies, precedents and advances in climate litigation in the world, in the Global South and in Brazil

The role of the legislation in the mitigation and adaptation to climate change in Brazil was the focus of the event “Conference about Law and Climate Change” organized by iCS with the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law and FGV Direito SP, in São Paulo. The panels covered the topics of climate justice and disasters, legal aspects of energy and industrial transition and climate finance. Caio Borges, from the Institute for Climate and Society, was the moderator of one of the panels.

Three days earlier, Rio de Janeiro hosted a workshop on the topic, also organized by the Sabin Center for Climate Change and iCS, with support from the Columbia Global Center Brazil, the Research Group on Law, Environment and Justice in the Anthropocene (JUMA) at PUC- Rio, and FGV-Rio. It offered a comprehensive vision of the global and local perspectives related to climate litigation, with a special focus on the Brazilian context. While the first part explored the subject with comparative analyses between the world, the Global South and Brazil, the second panel spoke about deforestation. In the afternoon, the focus was based on corporate climate litigation and a critical analysis in Brazil, addressing precedents and advances. Caio Borges, Maria Eduarda Segóvia and Julia Norat from iCS were participants.
