Climate Change in Africa : Social and Political Impacts, Conflicts, and Strategies, Hardback Book

Climate Change in Africa : Social and Political Impacts, Conflicts, and Strategies Hardback

Edited by Bettina Engels, Kristina Dietz



This volume deals with the consequences of climate change and issues of international climate policy relating to Africa from a social science perspective.

The contributions by international authors question dominant political approaches and key concepts of the climate debate.

They explain how the effects of climate change are linked to existing social, economic and political-institutional structures and action by the State.

The authors show how social movements in Africa shape climate policy "from below".

The volume serves as an introduction into climate change in Africa.

It wants to stimulate a critical debate on dominant strategies and points out that there can be no simple answers to the complex socio-ecological and political challenges linked to climate change in Africa.
