Saving Small Island Developing States: environmental and natural resource challenges

Source(s):  Commonwealth Secretariat

This book considers the environmental consequences of climate change for small island states, introducing and explaining the key environmental policy challenges and suggesting responses to them. It offers practical adaptive options for disaster risk reduction and proposes environmental policy instruments and governance.

The book is divided into five sections. Section one provides a theoretical analysis of the issues and concepts. Section two presents four previously published but highly influential papers, which have set the terms of much of the debate on these issues. Section three uses case studies to examine the policy instruments and approaches adopted by small states. Section four looks at environmental policies in action and examines the position of small island states in the world trade arena. The final part explores the global dimensions of environmental management.

Designed particularly to assist the new generation of environmental and natural resource managers in small island states, it will also assist current government policy-makers, as well as academics and students in the fields of public policy and environmental and natural resource management more widely.
