The Mariana Dam Disaster: Shared Learnings Eight Years On
This webinar, hosted by Canning House in partnership with Pogust Goodhead, reflected on the shared learnings from the Mariana Dam Disaster from multifaceted perspectives.
Questions to be explored included: which legal strategies can be transferred from the Mariana Dam case for holding multinational companies accountable for incidents involving their subsidiaries in the Global South? How does the Mariana Dam case speak to the wider advancements in climate change litigation over the past decade? Reflecting on the Mariana Dam response, what can be done to build effective partnerships with corporate stakeholders, local authorities, environmental experts, and host communities? And how may stakeholders mobilise these partnerships on the ground to influence the changes in policies, regulations, and risk management strategies on the books? Most crucially, how may these shared learnings from the Mariana Dam break be leveraged to prevent environmental, social, and economic damage for the mutual benefit of corporate stakeholders and host communities alike?
