About the Authors
  • This book is the result of the first comprehensive study of world wide climate fluctuations that is not primarily based on pre-existing literature reviews. The authors, employing original analysis, model runs, and data sets, use common climate change scenarios to examine the impacts on agriculture, water resources, coastal resources, forests and human health. The studies focus on the impacts of climate change in the developing countries around the world. In addition, the editors use Egypt as a case study, providing the first integrated analysis of a single country. This book will enable well-informed and up-to-date decisions by climate change researchers and policy makers.

    • Most comprehensive study of the impact of climate changes on the world
    • Involved the collaboration of over 150 scientists around the world
    • Of great interest to policy makers and climate change researchers around the world

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Overall, the cases are valuable focused studies in each of their particular domains....the volume will be of use to sectoral/area experts in the climate impacts community and can also serve as an introduction to a number of aspects of climate impacts." Roger A. Pielke Jr., Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

    "In a realm of research that has seen too many superficial analyses and resulting claims, the rigorous approach of this treatise is refreshing. It does nothing to lessen the uncertainty of impacts from climate warming, but the integrated, numerical approach of the final chapter develops a promising analytical methodology to employ in future integrated-assessment efforts." Wayne R. Rouse, American Scientist
