About this book

This book combines philosophical approach to climate change with scientific facts, impact of climate change and/or Kyoto (non) implementation in different regions or countries including impact on human health. The contributors have tried to illustrate how to deal with climate change (under Kyoto implementation mechanisms) such as land use changes. There has also been an effort to raise the concern for women issues and lack of their involvement in the discussions of climate change. The book also looks at the Kyoto Protocol (legal challenges; policies and national, international institutional structures required), way forward from Bali and beyond 2012.
