Local Climate Change Law examines the role of local government, especially within cities, in addressing climate change through legal, policy, planning and other tools. The book is an edited volume, and the international contributors include Stepan Wood, Jolene Lin, Hari Osofsky, Anel du Plessis, Lee Godden, Melissa Powers, Scott Pasternack and Marjan Peeters.
This timely study offers a multi-jurisdictional perspective, featuring international contributors who examine both theoretical and practical dimensions of how localities are addressing climate mitigation and adaptation in Australia, Canada, China, Europe, South Africa and the United States, as well as considering the place of localities in global climate law agreements and transnational networks.
Written from a multi-disciplinary perspective, this book will appeal to academics, post graduate and undergraduate students in law and political science, local and national government policy makers and politicians, as well as practising local government lawyers. Anyone with a general interest in environmental issues will also find much to interest them in this insightful study.
