The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department's Centre for Judicial Research and Studies published a special issue of the scholarly journal "The Judiciary and Law," focusing on environmental protection.

The objective of this research is to enhance legal scholarship and analyse the issue from various perspectives, aiming to develop rational and objective solutions that address environmental challenges and align with government sustainability directives.

The editorial of this special issue, available electronically on the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department website, highlights the UAE's efforts in hosting the most significant global event on sustainability and environmental protection -- the 28th session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations

Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 28). The event, which concluded last December, resulted in the historic UAE Climate Action Agreement.
The editorial notes that the world's convergence in the UAE to discuss climate issues and take appropriate measures against growing challenges underscores the country's leading role in environmental protection, resource conservation and the promotion of sustainability.

This role aligns with the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, UAE’s founding father, and is endorsed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, who declared 2023 the Year of Sustainability, extending the initiative into 2024.

The release of this special issue on environmental protection aligns with the Judicial Department's efforts to uphold the rule of law and protect rights. It reflects the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President of the UAE, Deputy Prime Minister, Chairman of the Presidential Court, and Chairman of the Judicial Department in Abu Dhabi.

The focus is on conducting research and scientific studies to offer innovative solutions that enhance the UAE's global competitive position.

The journal features a collection of specialised studies, including topics such as green economy contracts and their role in combating climate change, the impact of climate change on criminal behaviour, criminal protection of children from environmental harm, national and international efforts by the UAE to combat climate change, compensation funds as alternatives to tort claims for a sustainable future, green courts and environmental judges, and the role of the media in raising awareness about climate change issues.
