Climate change and community resilience: Insights from South Asia
22 October 2021
Register Concept note
Organizers: SANDEE in collaboration with East West University (Bangladesh), Goa University (India), and Oberlin College (USA)
The South Asian Network for Development and Environmental Economics (SANDEE), International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD), in collaboration with East-West University (Bangladesh), Goa University (India), and Oberlin College (USA), are jointly launching the book “Climate change and community resilience: Insights from South Asia” on 22 October 2021.
This open access book contains 29 chapters documenting the myriad of ways community-based climate change adaptation and resilience programmes are being implemented in South Asian countries. The narrative style of writing enables the book to be accessible to diverse audiences from academics and researchers to practitioners in various governmental, non-governmental, and international agencies. At a time when climate change presents humanity with a gloomy future, the stories of innovation, creativity, grassroots engagement, and locally applicable solutions highlighted in this book provide insights into the hopeful ways of approaching climate solutions. South Asian countries have been dealing with the impact of climate change for decades and thus offer valuable learning opportunities for developing countries within and beyond the region as well as many western countries that are confronting the wrath of climate-induced natural disasters more recently. After the launch, the readers will have free and unlimited access to this book.
The volume will be published by Springer Nature (Singapore) and is dedicated to the late Professor Karl-Göran Mäler, one of the founding members of SANDEE. The book is edited by A K Enamul Haque, Professor, East West University, Bangladesh, Pranab Mukhopadhyay, Professor, Goa University, India, Mani Nepal, Programme Coordinator, SANDEE/ICIMOD, Nepal, and Md Rumi Shammin, Professor, Oberlin College, USA.
