Climate change will have a profound impact on human and natural systems, and will also impede economic growth and sustainable development. In this book, leading experts from around the world discuss the challenges and opportunities in building a climate resilient economy and society. The chapters are organised in three sections. The first part explores vulnerability, adaptation and resilience, whilst Part II examines climate resilience-sectoral perspectives covering different sectors such as agriculture, fisheries, marine ecosystems, cities and urban infrastructure, drought prone areas, and renewable energy. In the final part, the authors look at Incentives, institutions and policy, including topics such as carbon pricing, REDD plus, climate finance, the role of institutions and communities, and climate policies. Combining a global focus with detailed case studies of a cross section of regions, countries and sectors, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource.

In this noteworthy collection, the authors present the key articles published over the past twenty years which illustrate three related ‘modes’ of governing migration: a national mode, an international mode and a transnational mode. In recent years a new phase of migration policy-making has emerged: nation states, international organizations and NGOs have increasingly directed their efforts towards cooperative management of transnational flows and networks.
