Contents Notes
Climate change in this book is seen not only as an environmental problem but as a societal challenge too and as such discusses the governance issues from an interdisciplinary approach and across different scales: local, state, and national. Drawing governance lessons from case studies across South Asia, the book addresses the impact of urbanization and migration, the role of financing mechanisms and the economics of adaptation, and emphasizes that a top down approach in governing climate change adaptation and mitigation may not provide desired outcomes. The authors use governance as a lens to understand the challenges and opportunities regarding climate adaptation and mitigation strategies.
