About the book
This book contains 29 chapters documenting the many ways community-based climate change adaptation and resilience programmes are being implemented in South Asian countries. The narrative style of writing makes the book accessible to diverse audiences from academics and researchers to practitioners in various governmental, non-governmental, and international agencies. At a time when climate change threatens all of humanity, the stories of innovation, creativity, grassroots engagement, and locally applicable solutions highlighted in this book provide insights into the hopeful ways of approaching climate solutions and community resilience. South Asian countries have been dealing with the impact of climate change for decades and thus offer valuable learning opportunities for developing countries within and beyond the region as well as many western countries that are confronting the wrath of climate-induced natural disasters more recently.
The volume is published by Springer Nature (Singapore) and is dedicated to the late Professor Karl-Göran Mäler, one of the founding members of SANDEE. The book is open access, and the readers will have free and unlimited access to this book after the launch.
