Overview

Looking beyond the Kyoto Protocol's first containment period, an intense international debate over the future climate change regime has emerged. Countries in Asia have particularly high stakes in this regime, given the region's large population, growing greenhouse gas emissions, burgeoning economies, and vulnerabilities to the impact of climate change.

Climate Change in Asia is the result of a two-year study of domestic institutional processes in Asia to address climate change issues, national circumstances that impede countries from fully participating in the international debate, and elements of a plausible climate regime from an Asian perspective. The book identifies the institutional dimensions of climate change as well as links between climate change and sustainable development.
