Are Commonwealth climate targets legally negligent? An Australian Urgenda

Are Commonwealth climate targets legally negligent? An Australian Urgenda MON, AUG 22 AT 1:00 PM, CARLTON, VIC

In June 2015, The Hague District Court found the Dutch government’s climate targets negligent in the case of Urgenda v The Netherlands. The court ordered government to increase mitigation ambition in light of pervasive threat of climate change. Since then, there has been considerable interest in running a similar case in Australia…might form basis of legally recognisable negligence, would be difficult to establish in Australian law… seminar outlines major hurdles…before contending each may be surmountable…claim in negligence against Commonwealth government for insufficient action has prospect of success.
