Climate change and poverty : A new agenda for developed nations Paperback / softback


Climate change is the main challenge facing developed countries in the 21st century.

To what extent does this agenda converge with issues of poverty and social exclusion?

Climate change and poverty offers a timely new perspective on the `ecosocial' understanding of the causes and symptoms of, and solutions to, poverty and applies this to recent developments across a number of areas, including fuel poverty, food poverty, housing, transport and air pollution.

Unlike any other publication, the book therefore establishes a new agenda for both environmental and social policies which has cross-national relevance.

It will appeal to students in social policy, public policy, applied social studies and politics and will also be of interest to those studying international development, economics and geography
