Keywords: climate change | intellectual property law | developing countries

This paper takes the discussion about legal tools in the context of climate change beyond the focus on intellectual property law to direct attention instead to the importance of regulatory frameworks within developing countries themselves. Our contention is that access to technologies represents only half the picture, with the other half concerning absorption of those technologies at the domestic level. In particular, we take what is known about the design of effective regulation in Europe and the little that is known about effective regulation in developing countries in the context of environmental law, and sketch out how this might apply to the broader end of creating a legal toolbox in the context of climate change.
