Although the impacts of climate change are certainly global, its manifestations and subsequent consequences begin locally. This book aims to shift climate change debate among academics and policy-makers from the global to the local. Local Climate Change and Societyexamines how climate change has altered society's relationship with the environment and the resulting structural changes in local communities to adapt to and mitigate climate change. The book analyses the principles, practices and local responses to micro-level climate policies and interrogates the increasing role of local climate social movements induced by transnational corporations' activities both above and below the equator. The book contains international case studies and inter-disciplinary contributions from academics, researchers and policy makers at the cutting edge of climate change knowledge.
