Uncharted waters: exploring judicial avenues for climate displaced communities

This report is the second in a series of three reports addressing judicial aspects of the struggle to secure justice for climate displaced persons everywhere. This series is designed to provide practical support to those forced to flee their homes because of the effects of climate change and to human rights practitioners seeking pathways to justice. Almost three dozen international and regional judicial and quasi-judicial avenues exist for potential use by climate displaced persons and their advocates. The vast majority of these 33 mechanisms have yet to address climate displacement issues. There is, therefore, tremendous scope to utilise these mechanisms to provide redress, and prevent or stop human rights violations associated with climate displacement. This publication finds that much remains to be done.
