  8. Research Handbook on Climate Governance

    Research Handbook on Climate Governance

    Edited by Karin Bäckstrand, Eva Lövbrand
    The 2009 United Nations climate conference in Copenhagen is often represented as a watershed in global climate politics, when the diplomatic efforts to negotiate a successor agreement to the Kyoto Protocol failed and was replaced by a fragmented and decentralized climate governance order. In the post-Copenhagen landscape the top-down universal approach to climate governance has gradually given way for a more complex, hybrid and dispersed political landscape involving multiple actors, arenas and sites. The Research Handbook on Climate Governance takes stock of these developments in time for the upcoming UN climate conference in Paris in December 2015. The Handbook contains contributions from more than 50 internationally leading scholars and explores the latest trends and theoretical developments of the climate governance scholarship. Learn More

  10. The Political Economy of Sustainable Development

    The Political Economy of Sustainable Development

    Timothy Cadman, Lauren Eastwood, Federico Lopez-Casero Michaelis, Tek N. Maraseni, Jamie Pittock, Tapan Sarker
    Since the Rio ‘Earth’ Summit of 1992, sustainable development has become the major policy response to tackling global environmental degradation, from climate change, to loss of biodiversity, and deforestation. Market instruments such as emissions trading, payments for ecosystem services, and timber certification have become the main mechanisms for financing the sustainable management of the earth’s natural resources. Yet how effective are they – and do they help the planet, and developing countries, or merely uphold the economic status quo? This book investigates these questions. Learn More

The contributors offer an interdisciplinary analysis of the urbanization process in China, and examine the following key topics: the institutional foundations of Chinese cities, the legal status of the land, the rural to urban migration, the preservation of the urban heritage and the creation of urban community, and the competitiveness of Chinese cities. They define the current issues and challenges emerging from China’s urbanization. Learn More

  18. The Domestic Politics of Global Climate Change

    The Domestic Politics of Global Climate Change

    Edited by Guri Bang, Arild Underdal, Steinar Andresen
    Why are some countries more willing and able than others to engage in climate change mitigation? The Domestic Politics of Global Climate Change compiles insights from experts in comparative politics and international relations to describe and explain climate policy trajectories of seven key actors: Brazil, China, the European Union, India, Japan, Russia, and the United States. Using a common conceptual framework, the authors find that ambitious climate policy change is limited by stable material parameters and that governmental supply of mitigation policies meet (or even exceed) societal demand in most cases. Given the important roles that the seven actors play in addressing global climate change, the book’s in-depth comparative analysis will help readers assess the prospects for a new and more effective international climate agreement for 2020 and beyond.
