This chapter analyses the existing international agreements on climate change, principally the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), according to the customary rules of interpretation of treaties set out in the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties. The discussions cover the UNFCCC; the sustainable development principle; the precautionary principle; the principle of common but differentiated responsibilities; the polluter-pays principle; environmental impact assessment; and the extent to which states have jurisdiction to regulate transboundary and global environmental issues unilaterally.

Keywords:   climate change, international law, United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, sustainable development principle, precautionary principle, principle of common but differentiated responsibilities, polluter-pays principle, environmental impact assessment, state jurisdiction
