About the Webinar
Owing to the dynamic nature of environmental problems, there is a possibility that the institutional structure to ensure environmental protection may not be well-equipped to meet the need of the hour. Therefore, in circumstances such as these, there is a need to reflect on the role of environmental litigation to best address environmental issues.
