Downscaling climate change impacts, socio-economic implications and alternative adaptation pathways for islands and outermost regions.León, C. J., Lam-González, Y. E., González Hernández, M. M., García, C., de León Ledesma, J., Lehr, U., Lutz, C., Ahlert, G., Meyer, M. & et al. (2021): Downscaling climate change impacts, socio-economic implications and alternative adaptation pathways for islands and outermost regions. doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5141549, McGraw-Hill, Madrid.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of the future scenarios of climate change and management concerns associated with climate change impacts on the blue economy of European islands and outermost regions. The publication collects major findings of the SOCLIMPACT project’s research outcomes, aiming to raise social awareness among policy-makers and industry about climate change consequences at local level, and provide knowledge-based information to support policy design, from local to national level. This comprehensive book will also assist students, scholars and practitioners to understand, conceptualize and manage climate change information and applied research. This book provides invaluable material for Blue Growth Management, theory and application, at all levels.
This first edition includes up-to-date data, statistics, references, case material and figures of the 12 islands case studies, so presenting a must-read book, given the accessible style and breadth and depth with which the topic is dealt. The book is an up-to-date synthesis of key knowledge on this area, written by a multidisciplinary group of experts on climate and economic modelling, and policy design.
