The fate of the climate change regime hangs in the balance as the
UN-led negotiations try to forge a new international strategy for
the post-2020 period. Since 1992, the UNFCCC and its Kyoto Protocol
has been the primary legal instrument to respond to the climate
challenge. However, the intergovernmental process has been riddled
with problems that have rendered it ineffective. The changing
economic landscape has further made this country grouping
problematic as some developing countries now emit more than some of
their advanced counterparts. Such problems have crippled the
existing regime in adequately addressing climate change. Building
upon the expertise of the contributors of this volume, this
ground-breaking collection aims to show the way forward for the
intergovernmental process. It is the first of its kind to explore
the key features of the regime, featuring meticulously researched
pieces from leading experts in the field. Each chapter responds to
the questions surrounding the political and structural limitations
of the current top-down approach taken in climate negotiations and
proposes various alternatives countries can take to overcome such
limitations in the process of building the post-2020 climate change
regime. In particular, this collection underscores the concept of
low-carbon development and green growth to make the climate change
regime more effective.
