About this book

Climate change and its impacts can have a very negative influence on people and their economies, and yet social and economic development is the very driver of climate change. This complex relationship necessitates a two-way approach embracing the influence of climate change and policy/strategy/action on development, and the influence of development policies, strategies and decisions on climate change.

This special issue of the "Climate Policy" journal focuses on new evidence that identifies options for action, examining how development strategies, policies and decisions can be made more sustainable by integrating climate change considerations and overcoming the barriers that hinder implementation. It explores what lessons exist for policy at the national and international level based on experience, research and case studies and looks at how promising options for local policies can be scaled up through international initiatives to enhance their impact.
