About this book

The environmental and climatic issues vary from continent to continent and are unique to Asia. Understanding the issues needs a lot of research and study material which students may not be able to gather due to shortage of time and resources. Hence an effort is made by the authors, gathering their experience and academic input from renowned universities of the world. Climate change is real and coping with it is a major concern for the future. Most of the publications written and sold in the past need updating and customizing. The general description of climate change will not help professionals and students. It needs to be considered area-wise, as a professional will work in a specific geographic area. Hence an effort is made to collect data from Asia which hosts the most populated countries along with ecological hot spots.
