Launch of the ICC Commission Report: Resolving Climate Change Related Disputes through Arbitration and ADR

4 December, 2019

The ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR, with the support of the ICC Commission on Environment and Energy, created a task force on “Arbitration of Climate Change Related Disputes” co-chaired by ArbitralWomen member Wendy Miles together with Patrick Thieffry. This task force prepared an extensive report on resolving climate change related disputes through Arbitration and ADR.

The report was launched on Thursday 28 November 2019 at an event hosted by White & Case in Paris.

The purpose of the Report is to examine the role for Arbitration and ADR in the resolution of international disputes related to climate change. The Report first defines climate change related disputes (Section II), providing case studies as appropriate, and then explores current, potential use and benefits of ICC Arbitration and ADR services to resolve such disputes (Sections III and IV) and identifies six broad features that potentially enhance the existing procedures to further improve their effectiveness for resolving climate change related disputes (Section V).
