Handbook of Climate Change Management: Research, Leadership, Transformation (Books & other media combined)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Climate change is one of the major challenges of modern times. Its impacts are manifold and vary fromsea level rise (especially relevant to those living in coastal areas), to the increased frequency of extreme events such as cyclones and storm surges, which not only poses problems to property and infrastructure, but also to human health. Climate change is also associated with damages to the physical and natural environment, as well as to biodiversity. According to the 5th Assessment Report produced by the Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), many geographical regions across the world are moderately or highly vulnerable to climate change, whose impacts may be further exacerbated by other human-induced pressures. The above state of affairs illustrates the need for a better and more holistic understanding of how climate change affects countries and regions on the one hand, but also on how the many problems it causes may be managed on the other, vis-a-vis a better ability to adapt. There is also a perceived need to showcase successful examples of how to duly address and manage the many social, economic and political problems posed by climate change around the world, in order to replicate and even upscale the successful ones. It is against this background that the Handbook of Climate Change Management has been produced. It contains papers prepared by scholars, social movements, practitioners and members of governmental agencies, undertaking research and/or executing climate change projects, and working with communities across all geographical regions. The Handbook focuses on "Research, Leadership, Transformation", meaning that it serves the purpose of showcasing the role these key areas play in respect of applied research, field projects and best practices to foster climate change adaptation worldwide.

He was raised in West Africa and Switzerland, cares deeply about poverty reduction, justice and equity, and has researched, written and published conceptually and empirically in these areas. He is a big picture thinker and has interdisciplinary research interests at the science-policy interface, including in areas of leadership development, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction, human resilience, the not-for-profit sector, sustainability, ecotheology and social transformation, among others.
