About this book

This topical book explores the global experiences of "Responding to Climate Change", with perspectives from Australia, China, the European Union, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the United States, as well as the International Energy Agency.

The authors, internationally recognized specialists in the field, discuss the obstacles faced by policymakers, as well as exploring policies and recommendations for achieving goals set in "Responding to Climate Change". The work also uses the case of Korea in the initial stage of its policymaking, as an example for developing countries not bound by the provisions of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol on climate change. This important book assesses current national policies and future options for the global response to climate change.

"Responding to Climate Change" will prove to be insightful for environmental policymakers and researchers for use in assessments of lessons in global and regional experience with climate change and for future policy directions. Graduate and upper-level undergraduate students studying environmental and natural resources will also find plenty of invaluable information in this important resource.
