Cleaning Up Without Messing Up Session 2: The Need for a Regulatory Framework for Implementation of Cleanup Technologies

There have been numerous initiatives made by governments, entrepreneurs, and civil society to develop and implement cleanup technologies to remove or aid in the detection of: floating litter from the ocean and rivers, litter deposited in sand on beaches, and microplastics from stormwater or wastewater. To put this somewhat neglected issue on the agenda the International Knowledge Hub Against Plastic Pollution (IKHAPP) at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research and the Plastic Pollution Working Group at Duke University are hosting two webinars.

International Seminar on Climate Litigation as Governance Tool

Can courts help save the planet? In the past decade, individuals and organizations across the globe have brought an increasing number of climate lawsuits. In the US, since the 1990s courts at various levels have heard hundreds of public and private climate litigation cases, which have contributed to the development of climate policy and governance. Yet, it is in Europe and Asia that the most significant breakthroughs have been observed recently, with Courts finding their government guilty of failing to act sufficiently to address climate change.
