The Climate Change Laws of the World project is made possible through the work of many contributors. In particular, the Grantham Research Institute at LSE would like to acknowledge the contributions of the following key partners:

Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School logo

The Sabin Center for Climate Change Law, a joint center of the Columbia Law School and the Climate School, develops and promulgates legal techniques to address climate change and trains the next generation of lawyers who will be leaders in the field. The Sabin Center is an affiliate of the Earth Institute and the Columbia Climate School. Climate Change Laws of the World builds on more than a decade of data collection by the Grantham Research Institute at LSE and the Sabin Center at Columbia Law School. Work to identify cases is now supported by a Global Network of Peer Reviewers, coordinated by the Sabin Center.

Foundation for International Law and the Environment logo

FILE is a global philanthropic foundation supporting legal innovation to address the climate crisis. The Grantham Institute would like to thank FILE for its generous support for developments to the database.

Inter-Parliamentary Union logo

The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) is the global organisation of national parliaments. It began in 1889 as a small group of parliamentarians, dedicated to promoting peace through parliamentary diplomacy and dialogue, and has since grown into a truly global organisation of national parliaments. Through the Grantham Research Institute’s ongoing partnership with IPU, we work to develop timely and relevant outputs on climate change legislation and policy that can inform the work of IPU’s members.

Edinburgh Centre for Constitutional Law logo

The Edinburgh Centre for Constitutional Law (ECCL) provides a focal point for staff and postgraduate research students working in all areas of Scots and UK public law, Commonwealth and comparative constitutional law, human rights law, environmental law and climate change law, democratisation and transitional constitutionalism, and constitutional theory. Data on climate-relevant constitutions found in the Climate Change Laws of the World database is gathered and maintained through an ongoing collaboration with ECCL.

University of Sussex logo

Based on the best practices of former treaty campaigns and existing struggles led by frontline communities, the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative started in 2019 through a Climate Breakthrough Project award. The Initiative promotes international action to phase out fossil fuel production based on the principles of non-proliferation, a fair phase out, and a just transition. LSE collaborates with researchers at the University of Sussex supporting the non-proliferation initiative to exchange information on national level laws and policies regarding moratoria, bans, and limits placed on fossil fuel use and/or divestment from fossil fuels.
