About this Unit
This unit examines the current international legal frameworks and discussion of future climate change scenarios. It will explore the legal, political and scientific challenges in addressing and responding to climate change. It will illustrate how international climate change law interacts with national law, including private sector involvement, but its principal focus is not on domestic law regimes. Market and non-market mechanisms such as emission trading systems, carbon taxes, new technologies and renewable energy targets will be examined.
