Energy Environment and Development Book Description:

Covers how energy is related to the major challenges of sustainability faced by the world today. The book starts by conceptualizing energy, and then relates it to human activities, to existing natural resources and to development indicators. It then covers the main environmental problems, their causes and possible solutions. Disaggregating national populations by income and by how different income groups consume energy, identifies the differences between local, regional and global environmental impacts, and thus ascertains who is responsible for them. Finally, discusses general and specific policies to promote sustainable development in energy. Coverage is included of today's pressing issues, including security, environmental impact assessment and future climate change/renewable energy regimes. Also covers all major new international agreements and technological developments.
