This thoroughly revised Research Handbook on Climate Change Adaptation Law brings together leading scholars in the field to summarise and assess key topics including tort and insurance law, disaster law, water law and marine law as well as biodiversity law and pollution control.
 
Providing a comprehensive review of new challenges faced as a result of a changing climate, this Second Edition considers the adaptation necessary to address the ongoing impacts from the warming of the Earth’s atmosphere at international, regional and domestic levels. It also analyses the legal instruments that go beyond helping societies to adapt to the changing climate, and assist in compensating victims of climate change damage. Chapters suggest forward-thinking approaches for how future policies and laws could help to create more climate resilient and stable societies, and offer a new insight into how climate change can affect both the local and international dimensions of security.
 
With its transnational and multilevel approach, this Research Handbook is an essential resource for academics in the field of climate change policy and law as well as policy makers, NGOs and other government officials working in the field of climate change.
Critical Acclaim
‘With this second edition of the Research Handbook on Climate Change Adaptation Law, Jonathan Verschuuren and colleagues offer the necessary legal tools for the indispensable legal framework countries need to adapt to climate change. It was, is and remains the definitive text on climate change adaptation law for the coming years.’
– Kurt Deketelaere, KU Leuven, Belgium and University of Helsinki, Finland

‘The significantly updated second edition of this Research Handbook remains an indispensable resource on this important topic. It brings together leading experts on adaptation to consider a long list of key sectors and on critical cross-cutting issues, such as climate justice, displacement, and compensation. It does so at a level that is meaningful and insightful, without getting lost in the subtleties of the diverse legal systems challenged to deal with adaptation.’
– Meinhard Doelle, Dalhousie University, Canada

‘This is a very significant book dealing with climate change adaptation law, especially since under the Paris Agreement national and local adaptation planning is becoming more mainstream. The great value of this book is that it encompasses climate change adaptation in a holistic manner dealing with the following fields, which are affected by climate change and extreme weather conditions: tort law, property law, insurance law, disaster law, water law, marine law, planning law, biodiversity law, building and construction law, environmental law, migration law, agricultural law, and energy law. This book presents the most complete analysis of the problem of climate change adaptation and is a very important recent contribution to general knowledge concerning climate change.’
– Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary University of London, UK
