Norvergence: Governments and Firms of 28 Countries Sued Over Climate Change

Environmentalists at Norvergence studied a report according to which around 1300 legal actions have been taken regarding climate crisis since 1990. 28 countries including Brazil, Spain, UK, Australia, Germany, and New Zealand are listed in the report.

Norvergence also found the piece of an interview given by the co-author of the report, Joana Setzer.

She said: People and environmental groups are forcing governments and companies into court for failing to act on climate change, and not just in the US. The number of countries in which people are taking climate change court action is likely to continue to rise.

Out of 1300 cases, two are considered as landmark cases.

  1. Ashgar Leghari, a farmer in the Punjab region of Pakistan filed a case against the government that it was violating his human rights by failing to curb the impacts of climate change. He won the case and climate change commission was established there.

  2. The Ugrenda foundation case in the Netherlands forced the government to adopt stricter emissions.

Norvergence applauds the effort of individuals or communities that were behind these cases.
