Media reviews

...a beneficial addition to the literature that focuses on transfer of technologies associated with climate change... the Technical Summary would be valuable to any who are interested in the subject of climate change and development of enviornmentally sound technologies to alleviate the possible results of climate change. Each section of the book contains a superb reference list providing further resources on specific topics. I would recommend this book to policy-makers and 'change agents' who will be promoting adoption and implementation of environmentally sound technologies and to researchers and developers who focus on issues of climate change.
