Climate smart development in Asia: transition to low carbon and climate resilient economies

Contributor(s): Srinivasan, Ancha [Editor] | Ling, Frank Hiroshi [Editor] | Mori, Hideyuki [Editor].
Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: London Routledge 2012Description: xxi, 250 p.ISBN: 9781844078622.Subject(s): Economic development - Environmental aspects - Asia | Energy policy - Environmental aspects - Asia | Sustainable development - Asia | Carbon dioxide mitigation - Economic aspects - Asia | Climatic changes - Economic aspects - AsiaDDC classification: 338.9507 Summary: This book covers all critical aspects of climate-smart development and attempts to integrate both market-based and technology-based solutions into a comprehensive approach for creating a roadmap for low carbon, climate-resilient economies in Asia. It examines strategies, policies and incentives in selected countries for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the energy, transportation, land use, and buildings sectors. It also identifies policies that are essential to improve resilience to both current and future impacts of climate change. The book highlights technical, economic, financial, and institutional challenges and opportunities for realizing climate-smart development in Asia at the national and sub-national levels. How the international climate regime can facilitate appropriate enabling environment in developing Asia is also examined. This book is essential reading for policy makers, students, practitioners, and researchers concerned with climate change mitigation and adaptation, and sustainable development in Asia and the wider world. It is hoped that the book will contribute to discussions on the theme of "green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication" in the run-up to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development or "Rio +20" and beyond.
