'The present volume represents a major contribution to the growing literature on international and comparative climate change policy. The product of a research project of the International Bar Association Section on Energy and Natural Resources Law (SERL), it brings together leading academic lawyers from around the world, who provide detailed perspectives on what individual countries are doing (or, in some cases, not doing) to address the climate change problem. The book illustrates the range of national actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including incentives for renewable energy sources, forestry activities, voluntary agreements with industry, and emissions trading schemes. By including experts from both industrialized and developing countries, it also highlights the very differing perspectives that must be addressed in any international climate change regime, whether under Kyoto or a successor. These detailed case studies provide a rich array of material, which should be of significant interest not only to academic and business lawyers, but also to economists and energy experts, government officials, and NGOs.' From the Preface by the series editors.
