About this book

Language: English

The threat of global warming is a typical example of systemic environmental problems, which is becoming more urgent and, being connected in unforeseen ways, creates unexpected impacts. It is also increasingly recognized that there is an interaction between climate change and development.

The environment and sustainable development dimensions are major 'lenses' through which climate change adaptation is discussed in Climate Change Adaptation Policies in the Framework of Sustainable Environmental Management, intertwining the three issues as single challenge. The framing of climate change as an environmental and human-influenced development problem necessarily shifts research strategies from a mono-disciplinary approach with an emphasis on natural sciences towards interdisciplinary research with stronger focus on co-production of scientific knowledge between natural and social scientists, policy-makers, and society. The book presents a thorough review of the recent literature on the discussed themes.

Some original findings of the author and his colleagues are used mainly to illustrate different scientific and political recommendations expressed in the cited sources.

The structure of Climate Change Adaptation Policies in the Framework of Sustainable Environmental Management follows its principal idea and targeted audience, first of all those who work in the climate change field in countries with economies in transition, and is aimed at specialists who are sufficiently acquainted with the problem.
