Beschreibung

Climate change will lead to many changes in global development and security especially energy, water, food, society, job, diplomacy, culture, economy and trade. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) defines climate change as: "Any change in climate over time, whether due to natural variability or as a result of human activity." Global climate change has emerged as a key issue in both political and economic arenas. It is an increasingly questioned phenomenon, and progressive national governments around the world have started taking action to respond to these environmental concerns. This book discusses the issue of food and water security in India under the context of climate change. It provides information to scientists and local government to help them better understand the particularities of the local climate. It offers insight into the changes to natural ecosystems which have affected the local Indian population. Climate change is one of the biggest challenges to Indian society. It can lead to serious impacts on production, life and the environment. Higher temperatures and sea level rise can lead to flooding and cause water salinity problems which bring about negative effects on agriculture and high risks to industry and socio-economic systems in the future.

His fields of interest are environmental systems modeling, climate change impact on aquatic and marine ecosystem especially phytoplankton transition, harmful algae by coupling hydrodynamics numerical model on coastal seas, bays and estuaries etc. Prof. Nazrul has made more than 40 scholarly presentations in more than 20 countries around the world, authored more than 110 peer-reviewed articles and authors of 10 books and research volumes. Prof. Nazrul has published an excellent book entitled "Environmental Management of Marine Ecosystems" jointly with late Prof. Sven Erik Jorgensen by the CRC press (Taylor & Francis). He has also edited an excellent book entitled: Bangladesh I: Climate Change Impacts, Mitigation and Adaptation in Developing Countries, Springer Publication, the Netherlands & Germany. Prof. Nazrul is currently serving as an "Executive Editor-in-Chief" of the journal "Modeling Earth Systems and Environment", Springer Publications (Journal no. 40808).

Prof. Dr. Andre Ronald van Amstel is an Assistant Professor at Wageningen University and Research, the Netherlands. Andre van Amstel studied Physical Geography and Planning in Amsterdam and has a long standing expertise in Integrated Environmental Assessment. He contributed to the development of Integrated Model to Assess the Global Environment at the Institute of Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands. He is particularly interested in the global environment and the risk of a runaway greenhouse effect by methane from melting of the permafrost in the Arctic. Van Amstel contributed to the IPCC 2006 Guidelines on Agriculture, Forestry and Land use and as such contributed the Nobel Peace Prize 2007 for Al Gore and the IPCC. Since 2014 he is a member of the Nordforsk Scientific Advisory Board for the Arctic Council of Ministers on Arctic Integrated Environmental Research.
