It is widely acknowledged that information, communication and education on climate change are important tools in the search for solutions to the social, economic or political problems climate changes poses. But despite the fact that much has been written about climate change, most works to date tend to focus on specific issues (e.g. climate modeling, forecasts) as opposed to addressing the problem in an interdisciplinary way as it should be. This book tries to address this perceived gap by providing a wide range of perspectives on climate change, which goes over and above the traditional barriers seen among subjects. It is interdisciplinary in nature and comprehensive in scope.
This book was prepared in the context of Climate 2008, the world's first scientific conference on climate change held on the internet, and is one of the first outputs of the newly-created International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP). It provides a long-needed contribution to a better understanding of the interdisciplinary nature of the subject matter of climate change and offers an overview of some of the on-going interdisciplinary projects and initiatives in this field taking place in different parts of the world.
