A new publication explores “Crucial Issues in Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol: Asia and the World”, edited by Kheng-Lian Koh, Lin-Heng Lye & Jolene Lin from IUCN Member the Asia Pacific Centre of Environmental Law, National University of Singapore.

The book focuses on responses to climate change in the world’s most populous region and provides the most comprehensive insight to the climate change discourse within Asia to date by drawing on the diverse disciplines and experience of legal practitioners, climate change consultants, government officials and academics. Individual chapters address issues such as how the various Asian countries — highly disparate in their cultures, socio-economic conditions and political systems — are responding to climate change, the challenges of mitigating and adapting to climate change, and the effective implementation of the Kyoto Protocol in Asia.
