Climate change and variability has become the primary environmental
concern of the 21st Century. The potential impacts and mitigation
of climate change need to be analyzed within the context of
sustainable development. Primer on Climate Change and Sustainable
Development presents a condensed and accessible review of the
latest state-of-the-art assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change. The book begins with a foreword from the chair
of the IPCC. Our current knowledge of the basic science of climate
change is described, before moving on to future scenarios of
development within the context of climate change. Possible
adaptation and mitigation measures, including cost and benefit
analysis, are discussed. The book will be an invaluable textbook
for students of environmental science and policy, and researchers
and policy makers involved in all aspects of climate change.
