  3. Resilient Participation By Simon Bell and Stephen Morse

    Stakeholder or public participation has become something of a modern mantra employed in all sorts of contexts to give people a voice. There are many variants on this 'participation' but traditionally they all share a desire to maximise involvement and provide desired 'outputs' of a required quality as quickly and as cheaply as possible. This book explores the large and diverse range of participatory methods currently in use, examines the problems and gaps in these methods and sets out an innovative new methodology which overcomes these shortcomings.

  4. Bioenergy for Sustainable Development and International Competitiveness

    by Francis X. Johnson, Vikram Seebaluck

With fourty-four authors representing thirty organisations in sixteen countries, the book offers a truly international and interdisciplinary perspective by combining technical and economic principles with social, political and environmental assessment and policy analysis.

  5. The Social Dynamics of Carbon Capture and Storage by Nils Markusson, Simon Shackley & Benjamin Evar

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) has emerged rapidly as a crucial technological option for decarbonising electricity supply and mitigating climate change. Great hopes are being pinned on this new technology but it is also facing growing skepticism and criticism. This book is the first to bring together the full range of social and policy issues surrounding CCS shedding new light on this potentially vital technology and its future.  

  6. The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity: Ecological and Economic Foundations by Pushpam Kumar

    Human well-being relies critically on ecosystem services provided by nature. Examples include water and air quality regulation, nutrient cycling and decomposition, plant pollination and flood control, all of which are dependent on biodiversity. They are predominantly public goods with limited or no markets and do not command any price in the conventional economic system, so their loss is oftentimes not detected and continues unaddressed and unabated. This in turn not only impacts human well-being, but also seriously undermines the sustainability of the economic system. This volume, along with the subsequent TEEB titles, provides the authoritative knowledge and guidance to drive forward the biodiversity conservation agenda for the next decade.
