Local Climate Change and Society
Local Climate Change and Society examines how climate change has altered society's relationship with the environment and the resulting structural changes in local communities to adapt to and mitigate climate change. The book analyses the principles, practices and local responses to micro-level climate policies and interrogates the increasing role of local climate social movements induced by transnational corporations' activities both above and below the equator.

"Can the dimensions of different scale levels from a socio-cultural, an economic-administrative and an eco-system perspective at all be compared? The different case studies in Local Climate Change and Society reflect these problems as there is not such a thing as a binary division of the global and the local scale, but in our world today, there are indeed many different scale levels according to the dimensions and the aspects involved". - Hans (J.A.) van Ginkel, former Under-Secretary General of the United Nations and Rector of the United Nations University in Tokyo.
