|| Call for Papers: Handbook of Climate Change Resilience - Towards Integrated Responses to the Causes and Impacts of Climate Change. Due to its relevance and impact, discussions on climate change resilience have now taken a central place in the scholarly discourse -and on political deliberations- on how to handle climate change. Yet, there is a paucity of high quality, high impact peer-reviewed literature on the topic.
In order to address this perceived need, the "Handbook of Climate Change Resilience" is
now being prepared. This publication, which follows the highly successful "Handbook of Climate Change Adaptation" first produced in 2015: https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/publications/handbooks.html with over 100.000 readers, is expected to contribute to the further development of this rapidly growing field.
The Handbook lays a solid basis, supported by scientific evidence, for improved responses to climate change. Its fully peer-reviewed nature means that it is a timely undertaking, supporting efforts to better understand what climate change is, which impacts it is associated with, and will help to cataylse and to guide future responses.
The Handbook will serve as an invaluable pool of information. know-how and experiences from which researchers and practitioners may support their climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts. Consistent with this aim, contributions are expected across a variety of sectors, e.g. transport, water management, forestry, agriculture, urban environment, coastal zone management and others. Contributors to the Handbook may include researchers, practitioners and those concerned with policy making on matters related to climate change. The Handbook, to be published as part of the award-winning "Climate Change Management Series" https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/publications/series.html with Springer, will ensure a wide visibility of the contributions, showcasing and documenting the work of the authors to a world audience
We are now inviting expressions of interest from suitable qualified professionals, who would like to contribute to the Handbook. They should consist of a 200 words abstract with the title of the contribution and the full contact details of all authors. The deadline for the submission of abstracts as expressions of interest is 30th November 2017. Full papers are due by 30th March 2018.
Please send your abstracts to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Authors of accepted abstracts will be contacted with further information (size of papers, style used, format to be followed, etc).
