About this book

This multidisciplinary volume articulates the current and potential public policy discourse between energy security and climate change in the Asia-­Pacific region, and the efforts taken to address global warming. This volume is unique as it analyses two important issues climate change and energy security through the lens of geopolitics at the intersection of energy security. It elaborates on the current and potential steps taken by state and non-­state actors, as well as the policy innovations and diplomatic efforts (bilateral and multilateral, including regional) that states are pursuing. This Brief stems from the assumption that its audience is aware of the consequences of climate change, and will therefore, only look at the issues identified. It provides a useful read and reference for a wide-­range of scholars, policy­makers, researchers and post-­graduate students.

Reviews

“Each chapter provides historical context along with discussion of international committees, state policies, energy and economic issues, and environmental impacts of climate policies. … This book is useful for policy-makers, researchers and scholars in presenting energy and climate issues being faced by states in a globalized economy. It provides a persuasive comparative analysis of how Asia-Pacific governments are working to change policies and business practices in an effort to benefit current and future climate conditions.” (Nicole Gerber, Natural Hazards Observer, Vol. 34 (5), 2015)
