Abstract:

"On June 24, 2015, The Hague District Court rendered a historic judgment in the climate case of Urgenda Foundation v the State of the Netherlands. The ruling marks the first successful climate change action founded in tort law, as well as the first time a court has determined the absolute minimum emissions-reduction target for a developed state, based on the duty of care and regardless of arguments that the solution to the global climate problem does not depend on one country's efforts alone. This paper, written by Urgenda's lead counsel, Roger Cox, provides a summary of the case and background information to it, and some context with regard to the developments in climate change litigation. It closes with some observations on the significance of the decision for climate change litigation in other jurisdictions." --
