Global Warming and Climate Change is centred on the comparison of policies implemented in Asia and Europe for dealing with the principal consequences of climate change, and its possible impacts on conflicts and security. The book explores the impacts of global warming and climate change on natural resources, particularly water and food; and on the frequency and expansion of natural disasters. It looks at the critical repercussions that can be foreseen on environmentally-induced migration as a consequence of these issues.
The book explains the Asian and European policies of mitigation and adaptation, as crucial elements of conflict prevention. It presents the asymmetries that exist between Asia and Europe in terms of conflict prevention, and the implications of climate change for human security and the security of states.
