Governance Approaches to Mitigation of and Adaptation to Climate Change in Asia

Governance Approaches to Mitigation of and Adaptation to Climate Change in Asia

By: Tek Nath Dhakal (editor), Huong Ha (editor)eBook


One of the key issues in climate change is the lack of effective governance. Climate change governance should address the impact of climate variability, climate policy responses, and associated socio-economic issues, which affect the ability of countries to achieve sustainable development goals. It requires a multi-level consensus, considering views and interest of all relevant stakeholders, on international and national legal frameworks, and a harmonised, transparent and equitable foundation for the implementation of such frameworks. Academics and practitioners from across Asia and beyond analyse country cases, including Bangladesh, India, Japan, Nepal, Philippines, Singapore and Sri Lanka explore themes such as public policy, water, environment, and agriculture. Together they provide a holistic view of how different governance approaches and perspectives mitigate and adapt the impacts of climate change.
