Climate Change and Growth in Asia is a comprehensive analysis of the major issues of climate change and global warming and their possible impacts on the growth of major Asian economies. The book addresses the climate change crisis in Asia within the context of three major challenges to growth: population, poverty and greenhouse gas emissions. The contributors of the book argue that, like globalisation, the effects of climate change are all-encompassing and recognise no national boundaries. Therefore, the issues emanating from this looming challenge must also be examined beyond the national boundaries and debated at global, regional and national levels simultaneously. The authors investigate the opportunities created by globalisation via trade, knowledge and the information economy, but climate change - induced by increased greenhouse gas emissions - risks restricting the opportunities created thereof. For those who follow Asian economies - especially graduate students of Asian studies, international business, the environment and economic development of Asia - this book is an invaluable resource. Furthermore, with its multidimensional focus and cross-cultural practical examples, it is an essential read for policymakers, including the Asian governments and international agencies such as the United Nations.
