CLIMATE JUSTICE: A RULE OF LAW APPROACH FOR TRANSFORMATIVE CLIMATE ACTION (Summary Handout)

By: International Development Law Organization (IDLO)

Summary Handout for the Policy Brief Climate Justice: A Rule of Law Approach for Transformative Climate Action.

IDLO’s Policy Brief highlights three key elements of achieving transformative climate action through the rule of law:

  • Empowering the most climate-vulnerable people to realize environmental rights and actively participate in decision-making processes
  • Strengthening regulatory frameworks and institutional capacity for climate-resilient development
  • Improving governance of land and other natural resources with a focus on enhancing land rights and sustaining peace

Drawing on these insights, the policy paper issues a call to action in the form of recommendations for policymakers and practitioners:

  • Empower climate-vulnerable communities and people
  • Invest in people-centered laws and institutions to promote transformative climate action
  • Champion feminist climate action and integrate gender-transformative approaches
  • Strengthen prospects for sustaining peace and stability by preventing and resolving climate-related disputes
  • Engage with customary, informal and indigenous justice systems to protect biodiversity and promote sustainable use of natural resources
  • Harness the transformative potential of the rule of law to address the intersecting effects of climate change
  • Mobilize global multi-stakeholder coalitions to accelerate climate action
