Abstract: Laws and institutions for the defense of human rights must rapidly evolve to the new reality of climate change. When vulnerable communities have tried to use human rights law to defend their rights and seek climate justice, important weaknesses in human rights law have been revealed. It is almost impossible for populations in poor countries to identify and pursue channels of justice, to have their cases heard, or to prove responsibility.
