Summary

Environmental change matters for human security. This agenda-setting book provides readers with a clear understanding of why responses to issues such as climate change, land use change, and biodiversity loss matter to present generations, and which types of responses are likely to create an equitable and sustainable life for future generations.The first part of the book describes what is at stake, i.e. why environmental change matters for human security, with an emphasis on immediate impacts and long-term implications. The second and longer part of the book considers the breakthrough conditions that are necessary for creating human security, and provides examples of innovative and alternative responses from around the world. This books shows that it is not only imperative to address human security in a changing world, but also possible. The authors emphasize that environmental change presents a new context and new opportunities for transformational change.Fresh perspectives on global environmental change from an interdisciplinary group of international experts will inspire readers - whether students, policy makers, or practitioners - to think differently about environmental issues and sustainable development.
