Population and Climate Change provides the first systematic in-depth treatment of links between two major themes of the twenty-first century: population growth and associated demographic trends such as aging, and climate change. It is written by a multidisciplinary team of authors from the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, who integrate both natural science and social science perspectives in a way that is readable by members of both communities. The book will be of primary interest to researchers in the fields of climate change, demography, and economics. It will also be useful to policy-makers and NGOs dealing with issues of population dynamics and climate change, and to teachers and students on courses such as environmental studies, demography, climatology, economics, earth systems science, and international relations.

'Logically structured and well balanced, this clearly written and well-presented book is quantitative in approach and makes no concessions to the inexperienced. It will be most useful for honours option-level undergraduates on a range of courses in geography, environmental science, demography and economics, and particularly for research workers wishing to broaden their understanding of the complex interactions between climate and human society.' Holocene 'The team that put this book together has done a good job. The concepts of climate change, demography and economics are expressed with clarity. The integration of natural-science and social-science perspectives is achieved with great success.' The Times Higher Education Supplement '... an excellent well-researched and well written book that surveys the status of the art in climate change, demography and on environment economics ...'.
