Overview


 Developing policies that will keep climate change in check has become a global priority, as increasing greenhouse gas emissions contribute to extreme weather patterns. If these emissions remain unabated, changes in global temperatures and the subsequent relocation of human settlements and economic activities will have huge economic and social impacts on the world’s population. The 2010 annual Land Policy Conference provided a forum for international scholars and policy makers to discuss topics including the impacts of climate change on land use; how energy and climate change policies affect land resource allocation and land use planning; relationships among urban form, transportation, and CO2 emissions; market-based approaches to environmental conservation; and global ability to deal with climate change and land management. 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
 The writing of each [chapter] is well crafted and structured, articulates points in a clear fashion, and is based on careful research. The book provides those of us interested in the intersection between land use planning and climate change, with concrete policy evaluations and options, with a very worthwhile and important resource.
