ID: 5414279224

[EAN: 9781844075300], Neubuch, [PU: Taylor and Francis(Routledge)], (480 pages) Climate change is now upon us. While mitigation is essential to reduce the future severity of climate change, it will take time and some effects will inevitably continue for centuries. Consequently, more attention is now being directed to adaptation as a means of reducing losses. As the importance of adaptation becomes more apparent, there is need for wider appreciation and understanding of the concept and its potential, as well as the obstacles to its effective deployment. This reader, the first of its kind, gathers some of the most significant writings on adaptation to climate change from the past two decades. Following an introduction tracing the evolution of adaptation from a biological concept into a policy objective, the book is divided into five parts: * Adaptation Theory * Adaptation, Vulnerability and Resilience * Adaptation and Disaster Risk * Adaptation and Development * Adaptation and Climate Change Policy This is the ideal collection for students, policymakers, researchers, activists and NGOs, and all people who need a solid grounding in all aspects of climate change adaptation.Introduction to the Reader 1.

While mitigation is essential to reduce the future severity of climate change, it will take time and some effects will inevitably continue for centuries. Consequently, more attention is now also being directed to adaptation as a means of reducing losses. As the importance of adaptation becomes more apparent, there is need for wider appreciation and understanding of the concept and its potential as well as the obstacles to its effective deployment.This reader, the first of its kind, pulls together and makes sense of the most significant writings on adaptation to climate change from the past two decades. An introduction maps out the field and traces the evolution of adaptation from a biological concept into a policy objective. The literature is divided into five sections. Part I: Adaptation Science includes papers that have been seminal in evolving the conceptual thinking about adaptation and tackles the complexities of adaptation typology and other conceptual issues. Part II: Adaptation, Coping and Resilience covers the specifics of what adaptation is and includes papers that feature case studies and examples of adaptation, discusses constraints to adaptation and examine adaptation vis-à-vis coping and resilience. Part III: Adaptation, Risk and Vulnerability includes papers that discuss the specific role that adaptation plays in reducing vulnerability to climate change and disaster risk and specifically the relationship between adaptation and risk management. Part IV: Adaptation and Development covers the relationship between future development and immense challenges posed by the needs of adaptation in a variety of contexts. Part V: Adaptation and Climate Change Policy presents material that discusses adaptation within the UNFCCC and also other policy mechanisms, such as insurance and legal issues arising from adaptation.
