UPR Resiliency Law Center (Español)
The UPR Resiliency Law Center is a two-part project aimed at shifting the balance of power to local communities in order to ensure that disaster recovery and rebuilding in Puerto Rico is effective, fair, and resilient, by:
- 1. Developing legal techniques to fight climate change,
- 2. Training students and lawyers in the use of said legal techniques,
- 3. Providing counseling, legal representation and education to individuals and leaders of communities affected by natural disasters and climate change, and
- 4. Establishing an advocacy center for disaster recovery efforts and climate change awareness.
