Samenvatting

This book addresses an important topic of food security in South Asia with specific reference to climate change. Of the 1 billion food insecure people in the world, more than 30% are in South Asia. The problem of food insecurity may be exacerbated by the projected climate change especially because of the water scarcity caused by rapid melting of the glaciers in the Himalayas and increase in variability in monsoonal rains and frequency of extreme events. Furthermore, large populations of Bangladesh and other coastal regions may be displaced by sea level rise. Thus, this volume addresses recommended land use and soil/water/crop/vegetation management practices which would enable land managers to adapt to climate disruption by enhancing soil/ecosystem/social resilience. In addition to biophysical factors, this book also addresses the issues related to human dimensions including social, ethnical and political considerations.

Recensie(s)

From the reviews: This volume comprises 35 chapters of papers arising from a meeting held in Dhaka, Bangladesh in August 2008 to explore the consequences of the changing climate on the food security of people in the South Asia region. ... this is a very informative and useful summary of climate change and crop production research in South Asia and especially Bangladesh. (Peter J. Gregory, Food Security, Vol. 3, 2011)
