The Handbook of Global Climate and Environment Policy presents an authoritative and comprehensive overview of international policy on climate and the environment. It brings together a global team of experts from the fields of environmental politics, international relations, economics, and law, who explore current debates and the latest thinking in the search for global environmental solutions. The volume reviews the key environmental challenges, concepts and approaches; the role of global actors, institutions and processes; and considers the links between global climate and environment policy, and that of the global economy.

Cutting across a wide range of related disciplines, the Handbook highlights the connections between social science research and global policy to provide an essential introduction for students, a review of the contemporary research agenda for researchers, and also an accessible resource for practitioners.
