iccopDeadline for submissions of abstracts is 30th April 2013

The International Climate Change Information Programme (ICCIP)- in cooperation with Springer- is  preparing a landmark, multi-volume reference work  titled the Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation. This is an addition to the series “Climate Change Management” which, since it was launched in 2008,  has become the world´s leading book series on the topic:

The Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation  will provide a concrete  contribution towards addressing the perceived need for high-quality, interdisciplinary papers, which can be used not only as a valuable information source but also as tools to support teaching and research and, as an added value, help to assist in  decision-making.

Although the  Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation is on the one hand grounded in the best science and meets the highest scientific standards, it aims on the other hand as far as possible to be inclusive methodologically, and be practice-based. It will also be fully international in its coverage and authorship, as befits a topic of such importance to humankind.

The  Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation is structured around 4 volumes:

Volume 1. Climate Change Impacts and Management
Volume 2. Policy and Climate Change
Volume 3. Climate Change Adaptation, Agriculture  and Water Security
Volume 4. Climate Change  Adaptation Technologies

A set of cross-cutting issues will be included, such as the socio-economics of climate change, resilience,  economics, trade, growth, development, justice, poverty, health, populations, security, international politics, the UN process,  democracy, education, information and communication. The Millennium Development Goals also represent a major element to be considered.
Due to its scope, approach and global impact, this is probably one of the most significant book projects in the field of climate change of this Decade.

This is a final call for abstracts from suitable qualified researchers.The final deadline for submissions of abstracts is the 30th April 2013. Details on the schedule and structure will be discussed with interested colleagues.
