Prospects for the new global climate change regime: 'hard' and 'soft' approaches

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationSpecial issue


At the Durban platform in December 2011, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) parties committed to enter into negotiation for the creation of a new global climate change regime from 2020. In order to have greater understanding about the legal nature of the new regime, various questions need to be explored in depth such as 1) its distinctive differences from that of Kyoto protocol in terms of binding commitments, 2) the potential role expected from developing Asia, and 3) the type of legally binding agreement that is universally acceptable. This month, we hear from Dr. Francesco Sindico, Reader in International Environmental Law at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.
