Following previous reporting on the United Nations General Assembly’s request for an advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice on the obligations of States in respect of climate change, the advisory opinion request has been received by the ICJ Registrar on 17 April 2023 and added as General List No 187. Following receipt of the advisory opinion request, the Registrar of the ICJ will have notified all states entitled to appear before the ICJ and any international organisations likely to be able to furnish information of the request and invited said states and international organisations to submit written statements (ICJ Statute, Article 66). Said states and international organisations will also be invited to submit oral statements at public sittings to be determined at a later date. For more information see the ICJ Press Release No. 2023/20.
