Climate Change: Meeting the Challenge (In 2 Volumes)

K R Gupta (Author)
Synopsis The book Climate Change: Meeting the Challenge is an attempt to understand the complexity of the phenomenon called climate change. It is an in-depth study on the actions taken so far by the international community in meeting this great challenge. The UN Convention and its classification of countries as Annex I, Annex II and non-Annex I countries is discussed. The various subsidiary bodies that have been set up under the Convention and the work of the UNFCCC through its Secretariat are also discussed. The Conference of the Parties (COP), the main decision taking body of the Convention has been meeting regularly every year since 1995. The COP meetings and their important decisions, including the Kyoto Protocol, the Bali Action Plan and the Copenhagen Accord have been analysed.

The key actions taken by the Indian Government to combat climate change including its ‘National Action Plan on Climate Change’ and the ‘National Green Tribunal Bill, 2009’ have also been taken up.

It will be highly useful to researchers, policymakers, negotiators and enthusiasts of climate change. It can also serve as a course material on Climate Change for Environmental Studies at graduate and post-graduate levels.
