The most promising examples of joint environmental action are actually megacities that are starting to reduce their environmental footprint, and that generate community-based life by investing in green spaces – think of Vienna's parks.

This book develops a theory of climate cooperation designed for concerted action, which emphasises the role and function of collectives in achieving shared climate goals. In debates on climate change action, research focuses on three major goals: on mitigation, on adaptation and on transformation. Even though these goals are accepted, concerted action is still difficult to realize. Climate Justice and Collective Action provides an analysis of why this is the case and develops a theory of climate cooperation designed to overcome the existing roadblocks. Angela Kallhoff starts with a thorough analysis of failures of collective action in the context of climate change action. Taking inspiration from theories of water cooperation, she then establishes a theory of joint action that reframes climate goals as shared goals and highlights the importance of adhering to principles of fairness. This also includes an exploration of the normative claims working in the background of climate cooperation. Finally, Kallhoff puts forward proposals for a fair allocation of duties to cooperate with respect to climate goals. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of climate action, climate justice, environmental sociology and environmental philosophy and ethics more broadly.

Environmental protection is a global issue. But most of the action is happening at the local level. How can communities keep their air clean, their water pure, and their people and property safe from climate and environmental hazards? Newly updated, The Environmental Planning Handbook gives local governments, nonprofits, and citizens the guidance they need to create an action plan they can implement now. It’s essential reading for a post-Katrina, post-Sandy world.
The numerous environmental measures taken by the Community (most often in the form of a directive) in implementation of the successive Action Programmes were generally based on Article 100 EEC often in combination with Article 235, ...

Culture is an important mediator between behavior and the environment, impacting on social participation and environmental action, and thus in turn on sustainable development. It is also of great significance in shaping our quality of life within the context of globalization, both in urban and rural areas. In this volume, renowned researchers from around the world and from a variety of disciplines, including psychology, architecture, design, and urban planning, take a global perspective in looking at the implications of culture and cultural differences for our quality of life and the way in which people interact. These implications are illustrated using real-world examples. The contributions, carefully selected and edited from presentations at the 17th Conference of the International Association for People-Environment Studies (IAPS) held in A Coru a, Spain, deal with the following main themes: Culture, quality of life, and globalization Environmental action and participation Urban sustainability and cultural diversity Children and the environment The elderly and the environment A useful tool for researchers, students, and those involved in decision-making processes, this book should contribute to the improved management of environmental resources within a framework of sustainability, multiculturalism, and responsible environmental action.

In this volume security specialists, peace researchers, environmental scholars, demographers as well as climate, desertification, water, food and urbanisation specialists from the Middle East and North Africa, Europe and North America review security and conflict prevention in the Mediterranean. They also analyse NATO's Mediterranean security dialogue and offer conceptualisations on security and perceptions of security challenges as seen in North and South. The latter half of the book analyses environmental security and conflicts in the Mediterranean and environmental consequences of World War II, the Gulf War, the Balkan wars and the Middle East conflict. It also examines factors of global environmental change: population growth, climate change, desertification, water scarcity, food and urbanisation issues as well as natural disasters. Furthermore, it draws conceptual conclusions for a fourth phase of research on human and environmental security and peace as well as policy conclusions for cooperation and partnership in the Mediterranean in the 21st century.
However, free trade is not the only motive for European action. There are many areas of environmental protection where action can be taken much more efficiently at the European level than by member states acting independently.

"Now that economic development is starting to pick up in many countries in Africa, the question arises how such development can be balanced with the need for adequate environmental protection. This crucial issue, inherent in the notion of sustainable development, is addressed in this innovative and path-breaking volume. For the first time, academics from seventeen African countries have joined forces to analyse the way in which economic and environmental interests are balanced in their legal systems. The authors all use a common framework to improve the comparability of the country studies. The different country-related chapters do not only provide insights into the formally applicable legal rules (law in the books), but given that the book brings together academics aware of the practice in Africa, they also describe the way in which environmental policy functions in practice (law in action). Many case studies, with conceptual analyses are provided of pollution incidents and the way in which administrative agencies or courts have on those occasions balanced the interests between the economy, society and the environment. A critical comparative analysis by the editors points at tendencies towards convergence and points of divergence between the African countries. Suggestions for policy reform are also formulated, showing African countries how they can benefit from experiences in the US and Europe. This thought provoking volume is a must for anyone (academic, policymaker or practitioner) interested in sustainable development generally and in Africa in particular."--P.  of cover.
