The science has been clear for decades, climate change must be addressed extremely urgently to avoid unacceptable damages to society and ecosystems. But the political responses are slow and insufficient. Therefore, many organisations and individuals around the world are looking at possibilities of using legal institutions to advance climate action. The number of legal cases has increased rapidly in the past 5 years, and there are now well over 2,000 legal cases around the world.
