Over the past two decades, considerable attention has been given to the subject of climate mitigation, of the development of laws and policies to reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions that are contributing to global warming. More recently, in addition to climate mitigation, attention has turned to the question of climate adaptation, of the development of law and policies that respond to the environmental consequences of climate change. In this Pacific Region Edition of the Golden Gate University Environmental Law Journal, titled Climate Resiliency – California Prepares for an Altered Environment, we develop this theme of climate adaptation. Our edition features six articles, three from professionals in the legal field and three from students at Golden Gate University.
