About this book

First assesses the implications of global warming for the regional climate and sea level and then examines what is known, and not known, about the possible effects on natural resources and socio-economic systems, including the legal implications and the special problems of the low-lying coast. |The key research steps and policy directions for reducing future vulnerability are identified and discussed.

Warrick and Ahmad's learned treatise is a comprehensive and thorough piece of work and it should be read by all serious academics, political leader4s, policy-makers and media commentators before they form their opinions on the portents of environmental change for Bangladesh.' The Holocene, 7 (1997)
