About this book

This book develops a pragmatic framework for evaluating the climate change options faced by each developing country, depending on their individual circumstances. It assesses present methods, suggesting ways in which these might be improved and proposes ways in which social and developmental aspects can be taken into account.

'This book is exceptionally important.' Environment and Planning C: Government and Policy 'Thoughtfully put together and can be recommended to all the practitioners in the fields of climate change and sustainable development.' The Journal of Energy Literature 'The book is a valiant effort to bring two strands of human dimension research (economic and social analysis) together within a coherent and compelling analytical framework.' The Geographical Review 'Makes a substantial contribution to the practical, effective analysis of climate change mitigation options in developing countries.' Development And Cooperation 'This book will provide an introduction into the field and show how policies that are eminently sensible through 'developed' eyes could affect less economically developed countries.'
