This first decade of the 21st Century has shown how much still needs to be done in respect of climate change mitigation and adaptation efforts, but also in respect of communication, education and training on climate change. Therefore, the Decade 2011-2020 needs to be the "Decade of Climate Change Education, Awareness and Training" and ICCIP will be running various projects and will organise many activities, to achieve this goal.

Welcome to ICCIP the International Climate Change Information Programme

Call for Papers: "Managing Climate Change in the Asia-Pacific Region"

The "Climate Change Management Series", published with Springer is a leading book series on climate change management. It is now calling for papers for a new volume, to be launched in late 2014, titled "Managing Climate Change in the Asia-Pacific Region".

Due to its geo-political structure, the Asia-Pacific region is one of the most vulnerable areas to the impacts of climate change. Yet, there is a paucity of scientific publications which look at the particularities and complexities of cllimate change adaptation in the region in an interactive manner, and which highlight the diffferentiated impacts of climate change across countries. The book will address this need, and will bridge the knowledge gap seen in this field, with a special focus on aspects of climate change management. The publication will document and promote scholarly research, practical projects, field work and other climate change adaptation initiatives, from scientists based -or working- in the Asia-Pacific region. Expressions of interest, initially consisting of a 200 words abstract with the full contact details of the authors, should be sent to:

Further details will be discussed with the authors whose abstracts have been accepted. The editor would be happy to discuss submissions in advance.
