About this book

Global environmental change will be with us forever, but how it happens in the future, and with what effect on the planet and its peoples, depends to a large extent on how the international agreements, national politics and local actions play out. This collection provides a comprehensive assessment of these critical interconnections and reveals how social scientists are making an invaluable contribution to the creation of more science and just livelihoods in a future world.
