About this book

This book offers original analysis of the complex relations influencing sustainable development within the context of global economic restructuring and the heritage of democracy.

The contributors examine climate change implications for two major global agendas: sustainable development and poverty reduction (the Millennium Development Goals or MDGs). Exploring alternative resource management approaches, including federal resource management governance, ecosystem services, digital dematerialization, ecological cities, biofuels versus food, and children and climate change, this innovative volume provides fresh insights on the human condition vis-a-vis the current debate on climate change.
