The HRC said it would release findings into the situation there and the state of rivers in Tshwane. The HRC conducted a fact-finding visit to the Temba Water Purification Plant and the Rooiwal Waste Water Treatment Works. It followed recent reports that the quality of water produced at the plant had severely deteriorated, leaving Tshwane with no choice but to temporarily shut down the plant. The commission declared the water in Hammanskraal unsafe for human consumption in 2019 and found the situation hadn’t much changed since.” Full Sunday Times Daily report (subscription needed) [Legalbrief 3 September 2021]

“Bust transition – European regions want to reward polluters rather than exclude them as they try to shift towards climate neutrality, WWF said. The green group examined 14 of the local plans submitted so far – by eight member states – in application for the EU’s €17.5 billion Just Transition Fund. It found that nine of the plans do not commit to ending fossil gas use by 2035, and eight will not have ended coal or oil shale use by 2030. This contradicts the commitments made in the Paris Agreement to limit global temperature increase to 1.5C, WWF added. It said that while some of the assessed plans showed promise, for example on the circular economy, none were an outstanding example of good just transition practice. On the back of these findings, WWF and nine other organisations have written to the European Commission to urge the plans are brought in line with EU climate goals and sustainability and social principles.” [CP Daily 3 September 2021]

Equity and Justice in the Ocean: Nathan Bennett, Independent Consultant and Chair of the People and the Ocean Specialist Group, International Union for the Conservation of Nature
Date: September 14th at 5pm BST
Register here: https://bit.ly/3yulTM7
The oceans are experiencing a rapid acceleration of both conservation and development activities. When poorly implemented or left unchecked, these activities can lead to environmental and social injustices for the coastal communities and populations who inhabit and rely on the ocean for livelihoods, food security, and cultural survival. In this talk, I will examine the types of social injustices that are occurring in the ocean, discuss how social equity can be taken into account in efforts to promote ocean sustainability, and explore priority areas for future marine social science research on equity and justice in the oceans. My aim is to encourage greater engagement with equity and justice considerations in all ocean-focused organizations and in all decision-making processes related to ocean governance and management.
This talk will draw from and build on a number of recent papers related to these topics:

The Constitutional Court Trust (CCT) is launching a fellowship programme to benefit young lawyers committed to forwarding constitutional and human rights law
“The fellowship opens to candidates from 2022 and will afford one early career lawyer per year the opportunity to study towards an LLM at University College London (UCL) , one of the top-ranked universities in the world.
The new fellowship is named in memory of the late chief justice Pius Langa. “Justice Langa was not only central to the establishment of the Constitutional Court Trust but, more importantly, his dedication, humility and commitment to the notion that service must be at the heart of leadership are rare qualities we believe young lawyers should be aspiring to emulate in contemporary SA,” said CCT chairperson Justice Sisi Khampepe.
Langa’s family welcomed the establishment of the fellowship, saying: “We look forward to seeing a new generation of lawyers committed to justice and transformation in Africa being developed through this fellowship programme.”
Other fellowships administered by the CCT have been limited to selected former clerks of the Constitutional Court and the Supreme Court. In the case of this new fellowship, however, the decision was taken to extend this opportunity to include exceptional young South African and African lawyers who have worked for an SA NGO in a legal programme focused on constitutional and human rights law.
Prof David Bilchitz, a trustee of the Constitutional Court Trust and professor at both the University of Johannesburg and the University of Reading, said: “We hope that the opportunity to study for an LLM degree will further contribute to strengthening civil society and its contribution to the advancement of constitutional democracy in our country.”
The fellowship award will be for £20,000 to cover travel and living expenses for the fellow, funded by the CCT’s kindred organisation the UK-based charity the South African Constitutional Court Trust — UK. UCL Faculty of Laws will be providing a full-tuition waiver (2021 value: £28,500) to the fellows selected by the CCT.
Application details can be found here and must be submitted to by email before Sunday, October 3. Interviews of shortlisted candidates will take place virtually in late October.” [Source: TimesLive 31 August 2021]
