Book Description This new volume addresses the burning issues of the impact of climate change, the alteration of environmental quality, and subsequent mitigation and adaptation strategies through various agroecosystem practices, primarily in agroforestry. The book discusses in depth the impact of climate change on forests and other agroecosystems. Addressing both mitigation measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to the effects of climate change, the book provides an overview of emerging practice, with analysis of the drivers of policy change and practical implementation of measures. Climate Change Modeling, Mitigation, and Adaptation presents the most current thinking on the environmental mechanisms that contribute to global climate change and explores scientifically grounded steps to reduce the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The significant contribution by greenhouse gas emissions to global climate change Cited by: 7.
The book Climate-resilient horticulture: adaptation and mitigation strategies addresses the effects of climate change on different horticultural crops and focuses on the adaptation strategies based on the scientific knowledge generated by the experts in different agro-climatic regions in India. About this book Climate change adaptation is increasingly recognized as complementary part to climate change mitigation. Climate change affects sea level, the extent of flood prone areas and precipitation patterns among many others. for policy-driven strategic thinking about adaptation to and mitigation of climate change with a focus on improved food security. Coping with a changing climate: Considerations for adaptation and mitigation in agriculture by Michael H. Glantz, René Gommes, Selvaraju Ramasamy pages, 3 figures, 2 tables, 13 pictures. Mitigation measures are those actions that are taken to reduce and curb greenhouse gas emission s, while adaptation measures are based on reducing vulnerability to the effects of climate change. Mitigation, therefore, attends to the causes of climate change, while a daptation addresses its impacts. How to mitigate climate change?
