Not least because climate change is a global issue, adaptation will require an international response. This book aims to identify issues, both theoretical and practical, that States face in establishing cooperative transboundary mechanisms to effectively adapt water management to climate change. Climate change adaptation in South Asia is redefining the roles of different actors in the governance processes. The existing governance lack capacity, knowledge, and leadership skills to manage the uncertainties and challenges posed by climate change. This book aims to explain how the governance of.

Brunner and Lynch have provided a much-needed reframing of climate science, policy, and decision making in the context of adaptive governance.”Cited by: Adaptive Governance and Climate Change.

About this book. Introduction. As greenhouse gas emissions and temperatures at the poles continue to rise, so do damages from extreme weather events affecting countless lives. Meanwhile, ambitious international efforts to cut emissions (Kyoto, Copenhagen) have proved to be politically ineffective or infeasible.
Two perspectives have dominated the social science discourse on climate change adaptation. Firstly, an international narrative among UN and donor agencies of technical and financial support for planned climate change adaptation.
Secondly, a significant volume of studies discuss how local communities can undertake their own autonomous adaptation. Effective and sustainable climate adaptation. Adaptive Governance and Climate Change in the Tropical Highlands of Western South America.
Climate change governance is in a state of enormous flux. New and more dynamic forms of governing are appearing around the international climate regime centred on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). They appear to be emerging spontaneously from the bottom up, producing a more dispersed pattern of governing, which.

The book presents a new perspective, where climate change is viewed as a new type of adaptation challenge for humanity, or what Heifetz et al. () refer to as an «adaptive challenge» – a challenge that draws attention to mind-sets, and the assumptions that underpin attitudes on change itself.
Adaptive challenges are both personal and. In this context, it is too easy to see adaptation as a narrowly defensive task – protecting core assets or functions from the risks of climate change.
A more profound engagement, which sees climate change risks as a product and driver of social as well as natural systems, and their interaction, is called by: Climate Change Governance and Adaptation explores the dynamic interactions between governance and climate change.
The focus is broadened beyond the state to the various actors – the state, markets, civil society and communities – involved in responses to climate change through eight South Asian case studies.
Critically explores how cities are engaging in climate change mitigation, adaptation and experimentation at a variety of urban and global scales Identifies new ways cities can contribute to low carbon development pathways in responding to global climate change Illustrates how city-engagement in Brand: Palgrave Macmillan UK.
Adaptive capacity - the ability of a social-ecological system (or the components of that system) to be robust to disturbances and capable of responding to changes - is increasingly recognized as a critical attribute of multi-level environmental governance.

Adaptation to climate change is not only a technical issue; above all, it is a matter of governance. Governance is more than government and includes the totality of interactions in which public as well as private actors participate, aiming to solve societal problems.
