9. Professor S P Sathe 16th International Conference on Politico-Legal Dimensions of Climate Change: Past, Present, and Future. Climate change has emerged over the last few decades as the ‘defining human development challenge of the 21st Century’. The legal journey of balancing the responsibility for climate change is one fraught with many hurdles. The diversity between the climate change contributors and the climate change vulnerables and their conflicting interests has delayed the global response to climate change, taking us to the brink of disaster. Through this conference, there will be an opportunity to shed light on this issue and to seek to create a a policy that can be applied to address climate change at the local level and may later serve as a blueprint for different regions and stakeholders.
