Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses international dispute settlement in the context of climate change. It looks into where international disputes that relate to climate have been heard and those, such as the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS), which have the potential to hear such disputes. As it forms as the backbone of the international climate change regime, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is also analysed. The chapter gives special attention to the ITLOS as among its main potentials of becoming a forum for future climate change litigation are its jurisdiction on substantive international law with comparatively strong rules on use and protection of marine resources and the marine environment.

Keywords: Climate change, Environmental disputes, Pollution, International Court of Justice (ICJ), International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS)
