This pioneering e-book offers solely with the politics of why edition as a world accountability remains to be overlooked.

Scientific consensus is that the affects of weather swap are expanding, as obtrusive from the higher frequency, depth and value of weather mess ups lately.

Example text

Bush reversed his campaign pledge and withdrew abruptly from the Kyoto Climate change regime, adaptation and politics 27 Protocol. This step by the world’s largest emitter cast a very negative shadow on the effectiveness of a mitigation regime under the Protocol, and forced a shift in the rest of the world’s perspective on what could be done about climate change. As a result, COP7 held in 2001 came up with the Marrakesh Accords, which among other things contained the first substantial package on adaptation.

So adaptation shall be understood to include prevention of harm as well as ex post compensation to it. (Vanderheiden 2011: 65) This approach argues that adaptation allows continuation of climate change, which is the root of the problem. So there is an understanding that mitigation is the best form of adaptation. However, non-mitigation is rooted actually in the non-internalization of pollution externalities from human activities that generate climate change. Therefore, adaptation is an imposed burden on the vulnerable societies, which already suffer from other economic and social vulnerabilities in an inequitable world.

Chapter 1 as the Introduction lays out the context, the ground, the inadequacies/lacuna in conceptualizing adaptation, the niche and argument for the book. The second chapter traces the evolution of how adaptation as a climate policy plank gradually rose to its present status since the 1990s. In the process, discussion focuses on why adaptation was held back during the first decade of the regime, how the Marrakech Accords (2001), Bali Action Plan (2007) and later Cancun Adaptation Framework (2010) were negotiated.
