Law and regulation at multiple levels of governance (local, state, national, transnational, international) play a central role in addressing the climate crisis. Climate law is a relatively recent legal discipline that draws on, and has close intersections with, other areas of law and regulation, such as international law, environmental law, corporate and financial law, law of the sea and human rights law.

YECAP, in collaboration with UNFCCC's Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE), launched the Compendium of Best Practices on Youth and Climate Governance in Asia and the Pacific at the 79th ESCAP Commission Session and the Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2023.

Climate Change and Democracy - Insights from Asia and the Pacific
This Report focuses on democracy and the climate crisis in the Asia and the Pacific region. A regional approach based on case studies has been chosen to contextualize the challenges to democracy arising from this crisis. The Asia and the Pacific region is significant for several reasons—it is the most populous in the world; it is a region that will be disproportionately affected by climate change and where many countries are considered highly vulnerable; and, as this Report makes clear, it is also a place where there have been vibrant innovations to democratic institutions and practices for dealing with the climate crisis.
