From the Publisher'This book is an exceptionally valuable resource and comes at the moment of greatest need - putting climate change mitigation and adaptation into practice is now an imperative for all spatial planning practitioners.'
Robert Upton, Secretary General, Royal Town Planning Institute
'Spatial planning has a vital role to play in responding to this global challenge. This book provides an in-depth, well structured and valuable analysis of the complex issues faced by planners at a local, regional and national level in developing an effective policy response.'
New Start Magazine
'In filling a gap in existing literature, the book has gone straight onto my recommended reading lists for teaching... Individual chapters will prove invaluable support for a wide range of environmental and wider planning modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and the book will be an ideal starting point for dissertation students. Those involved in doing spatial planning will also find plenty of interest in the book, and perhaps even some bedtime reading.'
Journal of Environmental Policy and Planning
'The book is useful to those who seek an introduction to the mitigation-adaption debate and consequent policies in the developed world. The first two sections of the book cover important material and contain many excellent articles. They are short and, as such, could be used as a 'reader' in an introductory course on climate change.'
Roz D. Lasker, Journal of Planning Education and Research
'A useful and welcomingly broad selection of case studies which reflect the various types of relationship between climate change and spatial planning. The contributions are often rich in data and information without being overly technical. Indeed, much of the material would make for an accessible and engaging read for the general reader with an interest in climate change.'
