About the report
Ecocide Law for the Paris Agreement – The role of Ecocide Law in limiting global warming

International law against mass environmental destruction – a law of ecocide – enables the Paris Agreement. Forests and oceans stabilise climate and urgently need protection. The oceans are rapidly becoming the new Wild West: a lawless territory beyond national jurisdiction for mining and extraction of fossil fuels, using methods that may cause devastation to life on Earth. Ecocide Law has an important role to play: the law would be international, and it would require responsible practices for extraction and production. The main purpose is pre-emptive: encouraging decision makers to think twice before major decisions.
