Much research on climate change is being performed by many universities round the world. But despite this positive trend, there are only a few publications where an interdisciplinary set of researchers may be able to tackle climate change issues from a variety of perspectives: social sciences, natural sciences, economics, etc. This book is an attempt to fill in this gap. This publication involves researchers in the field of climate change in the widest sense, not only from traditional climate science, but also from the fields of environment, human geography, business and economics, arts, administration and media studies. The aims of the book are twofold: I. to provide researchers at universities from across the world performing research on issues pertaining climate change with an opportunity to present their works and research projects, also educational initiatives; and II. to introduce innovative methodological approaches and projects which aim to offer a better understanding of climate change across society and economic sectors. Moreover, a further aim of the book, consistent with the philosophy of the “Climate Change Management Series”, is to document and disseminate the wealth of experiences on climate change research at universities taking place today. This book is divided into two parts: • Part 1 contains papers which describe experiences from climate change research, education and studies; • Part 2 describes experiences and lessons from climate change and related projects.
