520 |a "Global climate change is a topic of continuously growing interest. As more international treaties come into force, media coverage has increased and many universities are now starting to conduct courses specifically on climate change laws and policies. This textbook provides a survey of the international law on climate change, explaining how significant international agreements have sought to promote compliance with general norms of international law.Benoit Mayer provides an account of the rules agreed upon through lengthy negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and multiple other forums on mitigation, geoengineering, adaptation, loss and damage and international support.The International Law on Climate Change is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students studying climate, environmental or international law. It is supported by a suite of online resources featuring regularly updated lists of complementary materials and weblinks, and annually updated briefs for specific chapters"--  |c Provided by publisher. 
520 |a "Climate change is one of the greatest concerns of our time. For more than a quarter century, efforts have been made to mobilize international law as a tool to tackle climate change. Through the outcomes of protracted international negotiations and extensive doctrinal research, a new field of study has gradually emerged in international law. The international law on climate change is a system of State obligations to tackle climate change. It seeks to protect not only the sovereign rights of every State, but also the effective enjoyment of human rights, the interests of future generations and humankind as a whole, as well as other forms of life on Earth. The task is formidable: an attempt at altering the way we are changing our world. Some of the most complex negotiations ever undertaken have only touched the surface of the problem. The challenges are daunting, but the stakes are high and failure is not an option. It is hardly an overstatement that the fate of humankind depends on the international law on climate change"--  |c Provided by publisher.
