"Climate Change Policy Outreach Communication Strategy" is a simple book for all categories of people who would like to get practically involved in all climate change policy issues and options. The book is highly recommended for a wide range of stakeholders such as: policy and decision makers, researchers, science technology practitioners, environmental educators, media communicators, lecturers, climate change students, and outreach curriculum developers and evaluators. The book is subdivided into the following five chapters: Chapter 1: Climate Change Communication Issues & Options; Chapter 2: Radio Climate Change Information Diffusion; Chapter 3: Biomass Energy technology Adoption Challenges in Africa; Chapter 4: Climate Change Policy Information Diffusion; and Chapter 5: Climate Change Outreach Science Communication.
This book examines climate change management initiatives in the quest of addressing climate change challenges. The book highlights key issues related to effects of climate change and, initiatives and challenges to climate change management. The authors use the Tanzanian experience to discern issues in climate change such as: historical perspectives of climate change management; policy framework; role of actors; climate change impacts, initiatives and implementation challenges to unveil emerging and pertinent issues in climate change management. This book is therefore highly recommended to postgraduate students of Environmental Studies, policy makers, development planners, trainers, environmental practitioners and private actors in climate change management such as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and community-based organizations (CBOs).
Both the causes of and solutions to climate change are grounded in human society. Climate Change and Society summarizes the existing approaches to understanding the social dimensions of climate change from a variety of theoretical and empirical perspectives, analyzing its origins, impacts, and responses.
This qualitative research has tried to explore the experiences of Nepalese students regarding Climate Change. Climate Change is one of the most important environmental challenges with profound implications for several different sectors such as food production, natural ecosystems, fresh water, supply and health. There are several consequences of Climate Change and in the country like Nepal we may be in difficulty by the vulnerability of Climate Change. Thus, this research provides students views on the awareness of Climate Change, sources and process of getting information.
When we think climate change we think of man-made global warming, caused by greenhouse gas emissions. But natural climate change has occurred throughout human history, and populations have had to adapt to its vicissitudes. Tony McMichael, a renowned epidemiologist and a pioneer in the field of how human health relates to climate change, is the ideal guide to this phenomenon, and in his magisterial Climate Change and the Health of Nations, he presents a sweeping and authoritative analysis of how human societies have been shaped by climate events.

This book examines the interplay between the effects of climate change and human rights. It seeks to interrogate the contribution of human rights in addressing the effects of climate change on the enjoyment of the right to food in Kenya. Climate change has been recognised as a human rights issue. Despite this acknowledgement, many states are yet to deal with climate change as a growing threat to the realisation of human rights. The situation is made worse by the glacial pace in securing a binding legal agreement to tackle climate change. The thesis also reveals that despite their seemingly disparate and disconnected nature, both the human rights and climate change regimes seek to achieve the same goal albeit in different ways.
The present book ‘Global Climate Change: Causes and Consequences’ highlighted the cause and consequences of climate change. The book reveals the general anthropogenic activities, environmental pollution, ozone depletion, global warming, climate change and impacts on water resources and agriculture. The book mainly deals with the impacts of anthropogenic activities on the all components of biosphere in the form of global climate change as a consequence. This book gives an outline about the causes and consequences of climate change and its impacts on agriculture system, water resources, forest ecosystem and human health. The book will be beneficial for scientists, environmentalists, hydrologists, agriculturists, aquatic ecologists, health scientists, nongovernment organizations, research students and serve as a basic guide in the field of environment pollution and climate change.
