The Issues

 

Climate change  impacts are already affecting people and the planet. The biggest impacts  are upon the lives and livelihoods of the poor and developing  countries. But action to date falls far short of what is needed. At the  heart of the problem is the production and use of fossil fuels and the  destruction of forests. 


The  CJP works to protect the natural environment and people from the  adverse impacts of cliamte change through the strategic use of the law  across these key issues:

Carbon Majors

The Carbon Majors research found that just 90 of the world's largest Oil, Coal and Gas producers are responsible for 63% of industrial carbon emissions.

Climate Justice

Climate Justice shifts our focus to the human impacts of climate change and responsibility for those impacts.

Human Rights

 In order to contribute to the protection of the right of every person of  present and future generations to live in an environment adequate to  his or her health and well-being. 

World Heritage

A number of petitions have been lodged with the World Heritage Committee  requesting that sites threatened by climate change be added to the List  of World Heritage in Danger. 

Carbon Levy

 Loss and damage from climate change is happening: the Carbon Majors need to pay.
