Reviews

'The book will be of immense interest to students, researchers and policy makers in the field of climate change and economic development.' - Geethanjali Nataraj, Gulf Research Center

'The scientific consensus on climate change has grown substantially in recent years with new knowledge based on the work of the IPCC. One area, however, where further work is required is in respect of adaptation to climate change in different regions of the world. This book is a valuable addition to knowledge in this field with the research results and policy analysis presented with estimation fo impacts through regional modelling exercises, endogenous growth analysis and assessment of policy options. The book is an important addition to literature in this field.' - Dr R.K. Pachauri, Director General, The Energy& Resources Institute (TERI), India, and Chairman, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), UN, Geneva

'To enable economic development to proceed in a sustainable manner, it is important to address the issue of climate change and its relationship with economic development. This book examines and makes long term projection on the impact of climate change on the environment and economy in South East Asia. It should be of great interest to researchers, academics and students of climate change, economics, developmental and environmentaal policy, though they should also take note that 'environmental economics' is still subject to a great deal of uncertainty with respect to the collection and analysis of data, the specification of models and the interpretation of the results.' - Professor Eden Siu Hung Yu, Department Head and Professor (Chair) of Economics, Department of Economics and Finance, City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong

'This timely volume addresses crucial issues facing humanity. Climate change threatens sustainable development, especially poverty alleviation. The world's poor will face the most serious impacts. Key topics covered include climate change economics, macroeconomic impact estimates, modelling, with practical applications to adaptation in South East Asia.' - Professor Mohan Munasinghe, Chairman, Munasinghe Institute for Development (MIND) and Vice Chair, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), UN, Geneva
