Climate Law A Journal on Climate Change and the Law. Editor: Alexander Zahar. A complex legal regime has evolved to frame the international response to climate, encompassing interconnected elements of public international law, transnational law and private law. Domestic legislative action dealing with mitigation and adaptation is gathering. Climate change presents one of the greatest challenges of our time, and has become one of the defining issues of the twenty-first century. The radical changes which both developed and developing countries will need to make, in economic and in legal terms, to respond to climate change are unprecedented.
