From the Publisher"This is a great book. It demonstrates clearly that success is contingent on getting the rules, incentives and attitudes right. The book engages in all the right ways: with evidence, rigour, reflexivity, and a sense of geography and the lived reality of climate change." Professor Neil Adger, University of Exeter, UK.
"City leaders are searching for solutions to the massive economic, infrastructure, and health challenges arising from climate change. What they need are solutions that strengthen their communities' resilience - their ability to recover and bounce back from extreme weather. Susanne C. Moser and Maxwell T. Boykoff offer a critical resource with the contribution of Successful Adaptation to Climate Change." Michael Schmitz, Executive Director, ICLEI–Local Governments for Sustainability USA.
"Perhaps the most striking take away for many readers is the conclusion that—as explicitly stated by Lisa Dilling and Rebecca Romsdahl in their chapter on 'Promoting adaptation success in natural resource management through decision support'—investing in people and effective institutions is likely to be as important to successful adaptation as investing in scientific data and technical tools." Danya Rumore, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Anthem EnviroExperts Review, USA
