Climate change is now widely recognized as the major environmental problem facing the globe. In large part this is due to the production of energy using fossil fuels. The ultimate question of most policy makers now is how to reduce the climate change vulnerability of socio-economic systems in the most cost-effective manner. This interdiscipliner book will engage with this main question and focus particularly on public policies that would reduce environmental polution, induce environmental innovation, and green development.
The primary objective of the proposed publication is that of Reference material for scholars, public and private sector practitioners, and university students who need to better understand the growing importance of climate change mitigation, renewable energies, clean technologies, and green development.
The primary intended audience is scholars, practitioners, and university students who have the need for qualified Reference material regarding the subject matter of the proposed publication as outlined above. While having academic rigor, the book will be written in a way such that it can be understood by non-academics and non-specialists; essentially, it will also be appealing to the general public.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before November 30, 2014, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by February 28, 2015. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
Note: There are no submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication,Handbook of Research on Green Economic Development Initiatives and Strategies. All manuscripts are accepted based on a double-blind peer review editorial process.
