About the Authors
  • As frustration mounts in some quarters at the perceived inadequacy or speed of international action on climate change, and as the likelihood of significant impacts grows, the focus is increasingly turning to liability for climate change damage. Actual or potential climate change liability implicates a growing range of actors, including governments, industry, businesses, non-governmental organisations, individuals and legal practitioners. Climate Change Liability provides an objective, rigorous and accessible overview of the existing law and the direction it might take in seventeen developed and developing countries and the European Union. In some jurisdictions, the applicable law is less developed and less the subject of current debate. In others, actions for various kinds of climate change liability have already been brought, including high profile cases such as Massachusetts v. EPA in the United States. Each chapter explores the potential for and barriers to climate change liability in private and public law.

    • Objective, analytically rigorous and pragmatic approach gives easy access to global information on climate law and litigation options
    • Each chapter follows a template that facilitates comparative analysis, thereby enabling cross-fertilisation of ideas across national and regional boundaries
    • Covers major developed and developing country jurisdictions, thereby assisting policymakers who drive the climate policy debate and potential litigants from the public, private and public interest sectors
