Description & Coverage
Description:

The world is confronting the reality of climate change, which transcends geographical boundaries, necessitating a multidisciplinary approach. Effective mitigation strategies for climate change demand diversity, inclusion, equity, and collaboration as paramount considerations in the formulation and execution of mitigation strategies.

Global Perspectives on Climate Change, Social Resilience, and Social Inclusion illuminates the interplay between climate shifts and society's complex tapestry. Authored by leading sociologists and interdisciplinary scholars, this researched volume offers an exploration of climate change through the lens of sociology, unveiling its implications for our global community.

The book underscores that it is only through an amalgamation of biophysical, economic, political, and socio-cultural factors that we find a possible hope for real change. Its core principle is that addressing climate change is a collective endeavor, transcending racial, cultural, and economic disparities. Societal disparities come into sharp relief in the face of climate change's harsh impacts. This book unveils how climate change exacerbates preexisting social and economic inequalities within nations, creating a web of adversity ensnaring the marginalized. Within this context, sustainable development emerges as a linchpin, endowing societies with the resilience and tools needed to combat climate change-induced poverty, marginalization, and social exclusion.

Moreover, the book spotlights the proactive voices of voluntary associations and activists dedicated to championing climate change victims' rights. Their collective message resonates throughout: mitigating climate change risks must be integrated into a broader framework of resilient development, elevating the economic standing and quality of life for disadvantaged groups while fostering equity across all strata of society. This book is ideal for scholars, policymakers, and activists seeking a nuanced understanding of the intricate interplay between climate change and the social fabric of our world.
