Climate Policy

The leading international, peer-reviewed journal on responses to climate change

http://www.earthscan.co.uk/defaultCLIMATE_POLICY.asp/

Climate Policy is a leading journal of analysis and debate on

responses to climate change. It addresses both the mitigation of, and adaptation to,

climate change. It also provides a forum for the communication of research, analysis,

review and discussion of responses to climate change, including issues related to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change,

the Kyoto Protocol and the negotiation of associated policy instruments.

The journal makes complex, policy-related analysis of climate change issues accessible

to a wide policy audience and facilitates debate between the diverse constituencies now

involved in the development of climate policy. Topics include:

  • Analysis of mitigation or adaptation policies
  • Studies of implementation and prospects in different countries and/or sectors
  • Applications of integrated assessment to specific policy issues
  • Policy and quantitative aspects of land-use and forestry
  • Design of the Kyoto mechanisms
  • Analysis of corporate strategies for climate change Socio-political analysis of

    prospects for the UNFCCC regime Economic and political

    aspects of developing country action and involvement

  • Social studies of climate change, including public perception, where policy implications

    are derived

Climate Policy is of direct and vital relevance to academic,

industrial and government researchers, consultants and negotiators, industrial and

non-government lobby organizations, and to all those involved in making, developing and

implementing climate change policy at the national, regional or global level.

Contributions to the journal are welcomed, eg formal review articles, research articles

and commentaries. Notes for contributors are available from Earthscan or follow the link

below. The journal includes Book Reviews, Conference Reports and other items of interest.
