This paper discusses how international law has responded to climate change, focussing on the challenges that have faced the implementation of existing climate treaties, and on the suitability of the Paris Agreement to address these. It specifically reflects on international law-making and on the approach to climate change governance embedded in the Paris Agreement, drawing inferences from the past, to make predictions on what the future may hold for international climate change law.
