Call for Papers: "Managing Climate Change in the Asia-Pacific Region"

The "Climate Change Management Series", published with Springer:  http://www.barnesandnoble.com/s/?series_id=618899 is a leading book series on climate change management. Since its launching in 2009, the series has published some ground-breaking books such as "Universities and Climate Change", "The Economic, Social and Political Aspects of Climate Change", "Climate Change and the Sustainable Use of Water Resources" and others.  The Editor-in-Chief  is is now calling for papers for a new volume, to be launched in late 2014, titled "Managing Climate Change in the Asia-Pacific Region".

Due to its geo-political structure, the Asia-Pacific region is one of the most vulnerable areas to the impacts of climate change. Yet, there
is a paucity of scientific publications which look at the particularities and complexities of cllimate change adaptation in the region in an  interactive manner, and which highlight the diffferentiated impacts of  climate change across countries. The book will address this need, and will bridge the knowledge gap seen in this field, with a special focus on aspects of climate change management. The publication will document and promote scholarly research, practical projects, field work and other climate change adaptation initiatives, from scientists based -or working- in the Asia-Pacific region.

Expressions of interest, initially consisting  of a 200 words abstract with the full contact details of the authors, should be sent by the
15th February 2014 to: beids@beids.de. Full papers are due by the 30th April 2014

Further details will be discussed with the authors whose abstracts have been accepted. The editor would be happy to discuss submissions
in advance.
