This article discusses the potential for changing property rights during resource constrained times. The driver of climate change is shaping different sectors of property law related to natural resources and why it is important for policymakers to proactively address the need for related foundational legal frameworks. The reality of climate change and its wide-ranging impacts are irrefutable, requiring seismic shifts in how we organize ourselves in order to survive and prosper.
