Inaugural Judicial Roundtable on Environmental Adjudication, Rule of Law and Environmental Justice

The role of the judiciary is broadly recognized in strengthening environmental law enforcement, building specialization in environmental adjudication through the creation of environmental courts and benches and the institutionalization of a judicial certification program on environment, and setting up credible rule of law systems that advance integrity and environmental justice.

USAID Wildlife Asia recognizes the unique and distinct leadership role the judiciary plays in the environmental enforcement chain. The Supreme Court of Thailand has established environmental divisions (or green benches) at the Supreme Court, the Appellate Court and the trial court level.

This event is jointly organized by the Supreme Court of Thailand and USAID Wildlife Asia. It aims to publicly present innovative platforms, policies and judicial innovations from other jurisdictions that can be used to counter wildlife trafficking and stream the session online and through the SC’s internal TV network connected to all the courts in Thailand.

In addition, partners in this event include U.S. Department of Justice, U.S. Department of the Interior, Asia Pacific Centre for Environmental Law (APCEL), Faculty of Law of the National University of Singapore (NUS) and UN Environment.
