Australian Climate Law in Global Context is a 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. It 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.
