Climate Change Law in Zimbabwe

Concepts and Insights

Climate change is threatening the livelihoods of an increasing number of people globally. Legal instruments under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) seek to address the global climate change problem. Therefore, a comparative overview of the current legal position and potential position that climate change specific legislation in Zimbabwe may take, is imperative to understand.

This book seeks to provide relevant analysis to different audiences on how the law can be utilized to address the negative effects of climate change. Various concepts and insights regulating the different economic sectors in Zimbabwe affected by climate change are addressed. This includes essential aspects such as climate science, agriculture, energy, insurance, labour, human rights and finance. In the near future, policymakers, members of the legal fraternity, educators, civil society organisations, the business community and the media can contribute to the ongoing process of identifying concepts and strategies in order to adapt to and mitigate climate change in Zimbabwe.
