Abstract

Climate change is an inherently intergenerational problem with extremely serious implications for equity between ourselves and future generations and among communities in the present and the future. More than twenty years ago I wrote an article entitled Climate Change, Intergenerational Equity and International Law. The basic issues and the analysis remain the same, though a number of international agreements relevant to climate change have been concluded since then.
