Australian Climate Law in Global Context is an engaging and comprehensive guide to current climate change law in Australia and internationally.

It includes discussion of:

  • emission trading schemes and carbon pricing laws
  • laws on renewable energy, biosequestration, carbon capture and storage, and energy efficiency
  • the trading of emission offsets between developed and developing countries
  • the new international scheme for the protection of forests (REDD) and the transfer of green finance and technology from developed to developing states
  • the adaptation to climate change through legal frameworks.
The book assesses the international climate change regime from a legal perspective, focusing on Australia's unique circumstances and its domestic implementation of climate-related treaties. It considers how the challenge of climate change should be integrated into broader environmental law and management. It is a valuable resource for students in law and environmental science, for current and future legal practitioners and for policy-makers and those in the commercial sector.
