More about this title:

There is increasing consensus that climate change is real and that its causes and impacts must be governed for the purpose of preserving the environment and life on earth.

Climate change has many dimensions and root causes, several of which require concerted cross-border and supra-national strategies and action plans. While climate change has always been perceived as being a global environmental issue, the immediate impacts of climate change are decidedly localised.

It is pertinent that national governments must design and implement domestic strategies and action plans to facilitate necessary adaptation measures while simultaneously taking measures towards the mitigation of climate change.

Published in loose-leaf format and updated annually, Climate Change: Law and Governance in South Africa provides a comprehensive analysis of climate change, the relevant laws and policies and their intersection with international governance structures.
