Long description:
This important Research Handbook provides a guide to navigating the tangled array of laws and policies available to counter the multiple threats of ocean acidification. It investigates the limitations and opportunities for addressing ocean acidification under global governance frameworks, including multilateral environmental agreements, law of the sea and human rights instruments.


 
The book also describes regional and national approaches and challenges in responding to ocean acidification. The special vulnerabilities of the Arctic, Antarctic and South Pacific are highlighted. Limited responses by regional sea programmes and regional fisheries management organizations are summarized. Case studies are provided from Australia, Brazil, China and the United States.


 
This discerning Research Handbook will be a welcome read for policy makers and students with an interest in the laws and policies of marine governance and climate change. This will also be an ideal read for those who are interested in the pressing environmental issues facing the world community.



This important Research Handbook provides a guide to navigating the tangled array of laws and policies available to counter the ominous threats of ocean acidification. It investigates the limitations and opportunities for addressing ocean acidification under national, regional and global governance frameworks, including multilateral environmental agreements, law of the sea and human rights instruments.

?. . . the edited collection makes for an excellent contribution to the literature on ocean acidification. Many of the contributions address issues that have not yet received much scholarly attention, while those that cover more familiar topics provide new perspectives and track recent developments in the legal and policy response to ocean acidification. Research Handbook on Ocean Acidification Law and Policy certainly succeeds in providing ?a navigational guide to the tangled currents? of responding to ocean acidification at the global, regional and national levels. For this, the editors and the contributors are to be commended. Hopefully this guide will not only be the basis for further scholarly investigation of the different challenges ocean acidification presents, but will also be read by policymakers at different levels of governance and go some way to steering them towards more effective responses to continuing ocean acidification.?
