[PODCAST] Law of Duterte Land: Where PH stands in fight for climate justice

The Philippine Commission on Human Rights (CHR) will soon release an exhaustive report on companies it has found to be morally liable for the ill-effects of climate change.

A first case of its kind in the world to frame climate justice as a human rights issue, the CHR worked within the limited parameters of trying to impose exact accountability from global companies and even the governments that enable them.

The CHR report would not be legally binding on anyone, but the CHR hopes it can give birth to a string of new cases all over the world.

There are many difficulties in attaining climate justice within the existing frameworks – just some of them involving the doctrine of political issue, and a global consensus that many of our economies still rely on fossil fuel.

How do we use domestic and international law mechanisms to save the world?

Justice reporter Lian Buan spoke with CHR Commissioner Roberto Cadiz for this episode. Cadiz headed the CHR's inquiry panel which held hearings in the Philippines and abroad to come up with a report that found evidence of some companies and governments blocking efforts to transition to clean energy.
