International aviation grows at a rate of roughly 5 percent per year. Its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are forecasted to increase annually by 3-4 percent. While the aviation sector has introduced a number of technological and operational measures to curb emissions, these measures will not offset the emissions expected from its projected growth.

This book examines aspects of the legal framework underlying the international aviation and climate change discourse with a view to providing some recommendations that may facilitate the adoption, implementation and, ultimately, compliance with the International Civil Aviation Organization's (ICAO) global market-based measure (MBM) scheme to limit GHG emissions from international aviation. It examines ICAO's relationship with the climate change regime and the suitability of its institutional setting to address it. It also analyzes the European Union Emission Trading Scheme (EU ETS) and assesses the role of the major players involved in climate change discourse. The book identifies issues that should be carefully considered during the design of ICAO's global MBM.
