Climate and Development | Year: 2010
This case study explores the interface between climate change adaptation and socio-economic development in the Southern African region. It seeks to make the climate-development juncture more palpable and further highlights the challenges of integration from a policymaker's perspective. It makes a normative case concerning the following key questions: Why is it advantageous to integrate adaptation into development planning, given that the degree and specific advent of climate change is still uncertain? How should this best be done? Which action is required at what level?. © 2010 Earthscan.
