    This book provides an interdisciplinary view of how to prepare the ecological and socio-economic systems to the reality of climate change. Scientifically sound tools are needed to predict its effects on regional, rather than global, scales, as it is the level at which socio-economic plans are designed and natural ecosystem reacts. The first section of this book describes a series of Cited by:   Resilience: The Science of Adaptation to Climate Change In 'Resilience: The Science of Adaptation to Climate Change', leading experts interrogate interventions that support climate adaptation. Chapter contributions cover a range of disciplines, from law to engineering, and cover regions from Africa to the Pacific.

Understanding and evaluating climate change impacts is an important first step in adapting lands to climate change. Firstly, the book explores the cases in California much more comprehensively than it does cases elsewhere in the US as well as the world.

Given that climate change is global, we need to expand beyond the borders of California and look at some of the really enterprising climate change adaptation and mitigation work happening elsewhere/5(2). The impacts of climate change are already being felt. Learning how to live with these impacts is a priority for human development.

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/5. Climate change adaptation is increasingly recognized as complementary part to climate change mitigation. This book provides a comprehensive overview of key elements required for effective analysis and assessment of climate change impacts, economic cost-benefit analysis, communication processes and creation and transfer of knowledge.

This book analyses the links between climate change adaptation, resilience and the impacts of hazards. The contributors cover topics such as climate change adaptation in coastal zones, the evaluation of community land models, climate change considerations in public health and water resource management, as well as conceptual frameworks for understanding vulnerabilities to.

Abstract: In the developing world, climate change is already being felt by the poorest and most vulnerable communities. As the climate becomes less predictable and extreme weather events become more frequent, there is a clear and urgent need for support that will help these communities in their efforts to prepare for, and adapt to, the changing conditions.
