Legal Initiatives

We provide support to grassroots networks and communities at the frontlines of the climate and biodiversity crisis to bring legal action for climate justice. Litigation and legal initiatives that strengthen the rule of law, establish procedural rights and hold both government and corporations accountable for the impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss is a key step towards global climate justice. From small to medium sized organisations, we work fast to provide small grants to facilitate collaboration between community networks, practitioners, academic researchers and scientific experts.
