This textbook, by three experts in the field, provides a comprehensive overview of international climate change law. Climate change is one of the fundamental challenges facing the world today, and is the cause of significant international concern. In response, states have created an international climate regime. The treaties that comprise the regime - the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the 1997 Kyoto Protocol and the 2015 Paris Agreement establish a system of governance to address climate change and its impacts. This book provides a clear analytical guide to the climate regime, as well as other relevant international legal rules. The book begins by locating international climate change law within the broader context of international law and international environmental law. It considers the evolution of the international climate change regime, and the process of law-making that has led to it. It examines the key provisions of the Framework Convention, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement. It analyses the principles and obligations that underpin the climate regime, as well as the elaborate institutional and governance architecture that has been created at successive international conferences to develop commitments and promote transparency and compliance. The final two chapters address the polycentric nature of international climate change law, as well as the intersections of international climate change law with other areas of international regulation. This book is an essential introduction to international climate change law for students, scholars and negotiators.

MEDIA REVIEWS
the Bodansky, Brunnee, and Rajamani textbook, written by three of the field's top experts, provides tough competition and remains the key reference on international climate change law. * Kati Kulovesi, German Yearbook of International Law *
The authors have a long and illustrious record on climate change issues, and the reader would naturally expect to find therein the highest level of scholarship, set out in meticulous detail, and the broadening insight the practical involvement with climate negotiations brings to any doctrinal work. The final product delivers on each one of these points. ... the authors have produced a comprehensive analysis of a whole new area of international law, both discussing in depth the full extent of its regulatory content and debating its interface with the complex and polycentric context of the other international regimes that embrace and, ultimately, reinforce it. And, in spite of their concerns as to the transient nature of their research in a subject more than usually prone to the trials and tribulations of political controversy, they have indeed given us a tour de force on the matter. Highly recommended. * Maria Gavouneli, Yearbook of International Environmental Law *
This book is a comprehensive and authoritative account of international climate change law by three towering figures in the field. In addition to providing incisive legal analysis of the climate regime as it has evolved from the Framework Convention and Kyoto Protocol to the recent Paris Agreement, it offers a broader perspective on climate governance and the intersection of climate change law with other areas of international regulation. The authors have brought their unique blend of academic expertise and practical experience of the climate regime to produce the definitive work on international climate change law, and what will surely be viewed as an instant classic. Written in erudite yet accessible fashion, this is a must have for students, scholars and practitioners of international climate change law. * Catherine Redgwell, Chichele Professor of Public International Law, University of Oxford *
On the "defining issue of our age", Bodansky, Brunnee and Rajamani offer the definitive guide to the history, process and substance of international law's effort to address climate change - and the prospects we face. Measured, authoritative and readable, to the Paris Agreement and, hopefully, beyond. * Philippe Sands Q C, Professor of Law, University College London *
I can think of no better team of "academic practitioners" to bring a balanced insight to this surprisingly complex and subtle area of international law. I am sure even those involved in these negotiations will find new nuance and insight in this book. * Jacob Werksman, Principal Advisor, DG Climate Action, European Commission *
