Event description
The Thomson Reuters Foundation invites you to a panel discussion on the role of event attribution science in climate litigation.

About this Event

“Event attribution” is a ground-breaking new field of study that determines what proportion of a specific extreme weather event can be blamed on climate change.

Experts suggest that it could play a major role in climate change litigation, which in turn could reshape climate mitigation and adaptation policies globally.

Join us on April 24th, and hear leading experts in the sector share their insights on how this cutting-edge science could hold businesses and governments accountable – and drive climate-related lawsuits.

The panel discussion will be followed by a reception.

Speakers:

  • Jeffrey Sachs, University Professor and Director of the Center for Sustainable Development, Columbia University
  • Michael Burger, Executive Director, Sabin Center, Senior Research Scholar and Lecturer in Law, Columbia Law School
  • Julie Arrighi, Climate Advisor, Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre
  • Peter Frumhoff, Director of Science and Policy, Union of Concerned Scientists
  • Lindene Patton, Partner, Earth and Water Law Group
  • Moderator: Sebastien Malo, Climate Correspondent, Thomson Reuters Foundation
