This book sheds light on the legal relationship between climate change and human rights, based on tripartite human rights categories. Contributors of the book explore the relationship between climate change and first, second and third generation human rights, drawing on the obligations to respect, protect, and fulfil human rights.

The book is made up of three sections: the first section defines the general framework for understanding the relationship between climate change and human rights; the second section explores the relationship between climate change and specific first, second and third human rights generations; the third section analyses the human rights approach to climate change developed by the main international and regional institutional regimes.

The volume gathers together chapters by international experts, in order to provide a thorough analysis of the relationship between human rights and climate change and the possibility of combating global warming through the enforcement of human rights.
