This brief paper considers climate change law from an inter- and intra-national perspective. Three issues are touched upon. Firstly, given that New Zealand is likely to fall-short of it’s Kyoto emissions reduction target, the ramifications of non-compliance are considered. Secondly, the scenario post 2012 is addressed and a prediction made as to the architecture of the ‘Copenhagen Protocol 2009’. Finally, strategies adopted by other states are mentioned and those likely to have a direct impact on New Zealand, highlighted.
