The fragmented state of global climate governance poses major challenges to policymakers and scholars alike. Through an in-depth examination of regime interactions between the international climate regime and three other regimes (on clean technology, biodiversity and international trade), this book provides novel and timely insights into the various consequences of regime interactions. It also offers a critical discussion of the potential for legal techniques and institutional coordination to foster synergies and mitigate conflicts between regimes in the area of climate change.

Providing an in-depth examination of institutional fragmentation and regime interactions in global climate change governance, this unique book links the literature on institutional interactions and interplay management to the discussions on the fragmentation of international law. It contains the first comparison of different types of interactions and interaction management in the issue area of climate change, and addresses the important role of non-state actors.

This volume will be of great value to students and scholars of global governance and international law.
