Andrew Raine and Matthew Baird discussed the results of the breakout session and identified three key actions moving forward, namely: (i) the development of judicial capacity building tools, such as manuals, judges' certification or training, and green benches, environmental courts or environmental tribunals; (ii) the formation of judicial networks, such as the Asian Judges Network on Environment, and the Global Judicial Network on Environment; and (iii) the establishment of a Pacific Environmental Tribunal.
