About this book

The degree to which human conditions and the natural environment are vulnerable to the potential effects of climate change is a key concern for governments and the environmental science community worldwide. The Regional Impacts of Climate Change from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides the best available base of scientific information for policymakers and public use. The Regional Impacts of Climate ChangeAn Assessment of Vulnerability reviews state-of-the-art information on potential impacts of climate change for ecological systems, water supply, food production, coastal infrastructure, human health, and other resources for ten global regions. It also illustrates that the increasing costs of climate and climate variability, in terms of loss of human life and capital due to floods, storms, and droughts, are a result of the lack of adjustment and response in society's policies and use of resources. The Regional Impacts of Climate Change points to management options that would make many sectors more resilient to current variability in climate and thus help these sectors adapt to future changes in climate. The Regional Impacts of Climate Change can be expected to become the primary source of information on regional aspects of climate change for policymakers, the scientific community, and students.

Media reviews

"In more than 500 pages of tables and analysis, this report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change takes us on a tour of the world, continent by continent, examining the present interaction between climate and natural resources, and how things could change if the earth continues to get warmer [...] it certainly contains all the information needed for anyone attempting a serious study of the effect of climate on the environment."
- William Hartston, The Independent
