The World Conservation Congress has approved our motion on the strengthening of the environmental judiciary worldwide.  This is a project Professor Nicholas Robinson has pursued for the past few years with other partners, including the Environmental Law Institute, Justice Antonio Benjamin, and other environmental judges around the world.  We hope this Resolution will strengthen the movement towards an international institute for environmental judiciary to help build capacity on environmental jurisprudence in many nations.
