Abstract

This work analyses the judgments of the Federal Court of Australia at first instance and on appeal in the Sharma case. These decisions highlight that some relevant problems arise when the conceptual tools of the Law of Torts are applied in the context of Climate Change Litigation. This work identifies and discusses these problems in a Comparative Law perspective, drawing also possible lines of evolution of the law in this field.
