Adaptive Governance and Climate Change by Ronald D. Brunner, Amanda H. Lynch

While recent years have seen undeniable progress in international acknowledgement both of the dangers of climate change and the importance of working to mitigate it, little has actually been done. Emissions continue to rise, and even the ambitious targets set by international accords would fall far short of the drastic cuts that are needed to prevent catastrophe. nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp; WithAdaptive Governance and Climate Change, Ronald D. Brunner and Amanda H. Lynch argue that we need to take a new tack, moving away from reliance on centralized, top-down approachesthe treaties and accords that have proved disappointingly ineffective thus farand towards a more flexible, multi-level approach. Based in the principles of adaptive governancewhich are designed to produce programs that adapt quickly and easily to new information and experimental resultssuch an approach would encourage diversity and innovation in the search for solutions, while at the same time pointedly recasting the problem as one in which every culture and community around the world has an inherent interest.
