Call for Papers: "Managing Climate Change in the Asia-Pacific Region"

The "Climate Change Management Series", published  with Springer:   is a leading book series on
climate change management. Since its launching in 2009, the series has published some
ground-breaking books such as "Universities and Climate Change", "The Economic,
Social and Political Aspects of Climate Change", "Climate Change and the Sustainable
Use of Water Resources" and others.  The Editor-in-Chief is is now calling for papers
for a new volume, to be launched in late 2014, titled "Managing Climate Change
in the Asia-Pacific Region".

Due to its geo-political structure, the Asia-Pacific region is one of the most vulnerable areas to the impacts of
climate change. Yet, there is a paucity of scientific publications which look at the particularities and complexities of
cllimate change adaptation in the region in an  interactive manner, and which highlight the differentiated impacts of  climate change
across countries. The book will address this need, and will bridge the knowledge gap seen in this field, with a special
focus on aspects of climate change management. The publication will document and promote scholarly research, practical projects,
field work and other climate change adaptation initiatives, from scientists based -or working- in the Asia-Pacific region, which
show how the Asia-Pacific region is managing -or can beter manage- climate change.
Expressions of interest, initially consisting  of a 200 words abstract with the full contact details of the authors, should be
sent by the 15th February 2014 to: Full papers are due by the 30th April 2014

Further details will be discussed with the authors whose abstracts have been accepted. The editor would be happy to discuss
submissions in advance.
