Description

The symposium held on 28–29 July 2010 at the Asian Development Bank—whose proceedings are documented in this publication—brought together senior members of the judiciary and environmental ministry officials from Asian jurisdictions, academe, civil society, international organizations, and distinguished experts from developed countries and development institutions to share experience that will lead to an improvement in the quality of environmental adjudication on environment and natural resource cases in Asian jurisdictions. At the symposium, Asian judges proposed an Asian Judges Network on the Environment to improve the quality of environment court rulings and cases.
