Natural Capital and the Rule of Law: Proceedings of the ADB Second Asian Judges Symposium on Environment 2013

This publication captures the proceedings of the Second Asian Judges Symposium: "Natural Capital and the Rule of Law" held 3–5 December 2013 in Manila, the Philippines.

Following the success of the First Asian Judges Symposium in 2010, senior judges, environment ministry officials, prosecutors, legal professionals, and civil society representatives considered the state of ecosystems and the benefits people obtain from ecosystems in the region, with focus on the concept of natural capital and the rule of law. Against this background, participants shared insights about law and its enforcement challenges, including the role of judges in adjudicating cases affecting natural capital. The symposium also launched the Asian Judges Network on Environment, a platform for Asian judiciaries to share developments regarding environmental issues across the region.
