Abstract

The International Law Association’s Committee on the Legal Principles Relating to Climate Change was established in 2008. The Committee has Professor Shinya Murase, Sophia University, as its Chair, Professor Lavanya Rajamani, Centre for Policy Research, as its Rapporteur, and over 30 of the world’s leading international environmental law academics as its members. The Committee, after six years of work, and three Reports, has completed its work. The Third (and final) Report of the Committee takes the form of Draft Articles titled ‘Legal Principles Relating to Climate Change’ and attached commentaries. The Third Report of the Committee was approved and adopted by the ILA Washington Conference in April 2014. These Draft Articles, based as they are on rigorous evidence-based research, and representing the views of leading academics and practitioners of international environmental law, have the potential to shape and influence the evolution of the climate change regime. They may also provide guidance on the design and implementation of the agreement that is slated to emerge from the UN Durban Platform negotiations due to conclude in 2015 and take effect from 2020.
