About this book series

This book series, entitled “IHDP/Future Earth-Integrated Risk Governance Project Series”(formerly called IHDP-Integrated Risk Governance Project Series) for the International Human Dimensions Programme on Global Environmental Change — Integrated Risk Governance Project (IHDP/Future Earth -IRG Project), is intended to present in monograph form the most recent scientific achievements in the identification, evaluation and management of emerging global large-scale risks. Future Earth is a flagship initiative of the Science and Technology Alliance for Global Sustainability. It aims to provide critical knowledge required for societies to understand and address challenges posed by global environmental change (GEC) and to seize opportunities for transitions to global sustainability. Future Earth identifies three research themes, i.e., Dynamic Planet, Global Development and Transition toward Sustainability in its plan and adopts a new approach of “co-designing and Co-producing” to incorporate GEC researchers with stakeholders in governments, industry and business, international or intergovernmental organizations, and civil society. Books published in this series are mainly collected research works on theories, methods, models and modeling, and case analyses conducted by scientists from various disciplines and practitioners from various sectors under the IHDP/Future Earth -IRG Project. It includes the IRG Project Science Plan, research on social-ecological system responses, “Entry and Exit Transition” mechanisms, models and modeling, early warning systems, understanding regional dynamics of vulnerability, as well as case comparison studies of large-scale disasters and paradigms for integrated risk governance around the world. This book series, therefore, will be of interest not only to researchers, educators and students working in this field but also to policy-makers and decision-makers in government, industry and civil society around the world. The series will be contributed by the international research teams working on the six scientific themes identified by the IHDP/Future Earth -IRG Project science plan, i.e., Social-Ecological Systems, Entry and Exit Transitions, Early Warning Systems, Models and Modeling, Comparative Case Studies, and Governance and Paradigms, and by six regional offices of the IRG Project around the world.
