The Thomson Reuters Foundation invites you to a panel discussion on the role of event attribution science in climate litigation.

“Event attribution” is a ground-breaking new field of study that determines what proportion of a specific extreme weather event can be blamed on climate change.

Experts suggest that it could play a major role in climate change litigation, which in turn could reshape climate mitigation and adaptation policies globally.

Join us on April 24th, and hear leading experts in the sector share their insights on how this cutting-edge science could hold businesses and governments accountable – and drive climate-related lawsuits.

The panel discussion will be followed by a reception.
