Collaborations and Acknowledgements


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

The Sabin Centre for Climate Change Law at Columbia University

The Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law 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 and Climate Change Litigation of the World build on more than a decade of data collection by the Grantham Research Institute at LSE and the Sabin Center at Columbia Law School. More details about our collaboration with the Sabin Center can be found in our “about page” and in our “litigation methodology.” Work to identify new cases is also supported by a Global Network of Peer Reviewers, coordinated by the Sabin Center. 

The Foundation for International Law and the Environment

FILE is a global philanthropic foundation supporting legal innovation to address the climate crisis.

The Grantham Institute would like to thank FILE for their generous support for developments to the database.

Climate Policy Radar

Climate Policy Radar is a not-for-profit, data-led climate startup, on a mission to map and analyse the global climate policy landscape. The organisation is led by a team of leading experts in international climate law and policy, machine learning and natural language processing.
 
Through our partnership with Climate Policy Radar we are working to develop new digital approaches to enhance and accelerate the process of gathering and analysing data on developments in global climate change law and policy.

Inter-parliamentary Union

The Inter-parliamentary Union (IPU) is the global organization 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 organization of national parliaments.
 
Through our 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, University of Edinburgh

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.

Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty Initiative

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 regularly 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.
