Research Handbook on Climate Change Mitigation Law

Research Handbooks in Environmental Law series

Edited by Geert Van Calster, University of Leuven, Belgium and practising member of the Belgian Bar, Wim Vandenberghe, Partner, Reed Smith LLP and Leonie Reins, Assistant Professor, Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society, Tilburg University, the Netherlands

Governments around the world have been trying to find ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions for decades. This detailed Handbook considers the spectrum of legal and market-based instruments as well as strategies and policies adopted around the world and suggests more effective, comprehensive and responsive ways of managing climate change mitigation.

‘Van Calster, Vandenberghe and Reins have led an impressive group of specialists from around the world to deliver the definitive book on climate change mitigation. Mitigation law for all sectors (energy, industry, transport, buildings, waste, land use, forestry), as well as all relevant mitigation instruments (carbon trading, finance, litigation) are discussed in great detail and with an eye on all relevant countries and regions in the world, such as the EU, the United States, China and the other BRICS countries. This book is a valuable source of information on mitigation law and will be the starting point for any future research and decision-making on climate change mitigation.’
– Jonathan Verschuuren, Tilburg University, the Netherlands
