cultural legitimacy in adaptation and mitigation
"Climate change poses fundamental and varied challenges to all communities internationally. Adaptation and mitigation strategies proposed by governments and non-governmental organisations often require radical shifts in socio-political structures, technological and economic systems, organisational forms, and modes of regulation. The success of these proposed measures hinges on their acceptability within their local constituencies, which underlines the importance of better comprehending the role of cultural legitimacy in the choice of international interventions aimed at tackling the impact of climate change. This book brings together expert perspectives from different disciplines on the issue of international climate change law and policy. Each discussion explores the premise that critiques of the legitimacy of international climate change regulation have the capacity to positively influence policy trends and legal choices. Chapters range from theoretical evaluations to specific case-studies, and include such topics as land use planning, indigenous peoples in international environmental negotiations, transnational advocacy networks, and community-based forestry management. The book will be of great interest to students and researchers of environmental law, international law and environmental studies"--, Provided by publisher
