Abstract: Only few topics stir more attention of scientists, politicians, economists, environmental activists, managers of industrial companies and common population all around the globe than the issue of the climate system changes on the Earth, because the related impacts can be observed by every one of us in our neighbourhood – whether as extreme weather changes or as biodiversity changes. The author in his paper analyses international agreements regulating the climate change area, their development and contents. Special attention is being paid to analysis of the development of the international law regulation before the international codification in the area of climate changes. Finally, individual provisions of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Kyoto Protocol and the Paris Agreement are being analysed as key sources of the international public law in the area of the protection of global climate system. Their successful or unsuccessful implementation will have an impact on our, not so distant future.
