Climate Case Chart

Columbia University’s Sabin Centre for Climate Change Law and Arnold & Porter have collaborated to create a database of climate change litigation in the US and across the world.

It tracks developments in litigation and administrative proceedings related to climate change. Michael B. Gerrard, then a partner at Arnold & Porter and now Faculty Director of the Sabin Center, and J. Cullen Howe, an environmental law specialist at Arnold & Porter, created the U.S. Climate Litigation Chart in 2007. The U.S. chart is updated on a monthly basis, and currently includes 1134 cases* with links to 5449 case documents.

The Non-U.S. Climate Litigation Chart was created in 2011 and is updated regularly. It currently includes 308 cases, with links to 364 case documents.

This appears to be a very valuable resource for tracking climate change litigation across the world, with some momentous decisions having been made in the past few years.
