A comprehensive guide to climate change law and policy at the local, state and national level in Australia. Global Climate Change: Australian Law and Policy is a comprehensive guide to climate change law and policy at local, state and national levels in Australia. The international framework established to deal with climate change is also examined in the book, together with frameworks in other non-Australian jurisdictions.
In writing the book the authors have drawn on legal sources including recent studies undertaken by government and non-government organisations, commissioned reports and journal articles, as well as academic studies. In addition, the authors have explored the physical science basis of climate change, the impact of climate change on human and biological environments, with a focus on Australia and the Pacific, and climate change mitigation and adaptation issues.
Subjects covered in the book include: carbon sequestration; climate change litigation; business, risk and climate change; emissions trading; carbon markets; and possible post-Kyoto climate change regimes.
The book is aimed not only at legal practitioners but also those involved in business, government and policy formulation. Corporations will find the book particularly useful.
