Abstract

This paper discusses how international law has responded to climate change, focusing on challenges that have faced the implementation of existing climate treaties, and on the suitability of the Paris Agreement to address these. The paper specifically reflects on international law-making and on the approach to international governance embedded in the Paris Agreement, drawing inferences from the past of the regime, to make predictions on what the future may hold.

Keywords: Climate change, international law, Paris Agreement, law-making, climate governance.
