A complex legal regime has evolved to frame the international response to climate, encompassing interconnected elements of public international law, transnational law and private law. At the core of the international effort are the UNFCCC, the Kyoto Protocol, and the Paris Agreement. Domestic legislative action dealing with mitigation and adaptation is gathering pace, especially in developing countries. The focus of the peer-reviewed journal Climate Law is on the many legal issues that arise internationally and at the state level as climate law continues to evolve and climate change continues to worsen.
