    Project Description

    Climate change is the most significant environmental challenge confronting the global community. Responding to climate change requires the effective management of carbon, in all its forms, to promote reductions in atmospheric emissions. The existing legal framework, established in the nineteenth century, is inappropriate for this purpose as it lacks consistency and coherence, across the jurisdictions, in its treatment of the rights and responsibilities associated with carbon. This project will create a more effective, and integrated, legal regime by which to regulate the use of carbon and carbon emissions. This will promote a more sustainable environment for Australia.CLAYTON
