    This book addresses an important topic of food security in South Asia with specific reference to climate change. Of the 1 billion food insecure people in the world, more than 30% are in South Asia. The problem of food insecurity may be exacerbated by the projected climate change especially because. The book indeed is an invaluable resource for journalist, academics, policy community, researchers and anyone interested about the climate change in India. However, this book, as one of the new addition to the knowledge base on climate change in India lack the impacts of climate change on the most vulnerable sections in the country.

      South Asia is the region in Asia located south of the Himalayan Mountains and east of the Caspian Sea. India is the largest country in the South Asia region and experiences several climate regions. South Asia experiences all four seasons: spring runs from December to February, summer from March to May, Autumn from June to August, and winter.   Climate Change Governance and Adaptation: Case Studies from South Asia - Kindle edition by Barua, Anamika, Narain, Vishal, Vij, Sumit.

It highlights the dangers posed by climate change in South Asia and underlines the need to strengthen and intensify regional cooperation to preserve. From synoptic and aerologic data, together with many pictures from meteorological satellites, the seasonally varying large-scale flow patterns above the Indo-Pakistan subcontinent are outlined, together with the rain frequency distribution covered in 12 monthly maps, 1 annual map, and a map of rainfall stations.

In addition climatological research in the South Asia Institute of Cited by: 1. The volume fulfils the long-felt need for a reference book on the climatology of South Asia, for use in research libraries and teaching programmes in atmospheric science, geography, agriculture, water resources and the other environmental by: the climate challenges here, then there is little chance that the world will be successful either.

Thankfully, Asia has not been idle and South Asia in particular is emerging as a global leader in aggressively responding to climate change.

Through the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation, countries have committed to a. Drawing on the International Legal Standards and States’ Practices in South Asia regarding climate refugees, the book shows how IRL, ICCL, and IHRL (international human rights law) have been used to address and identify the gaps in the global legal protection framework concerning the contours of the normative debate on climate refugees.

This book addresses an important topic of food security in South Asia with specific reference to climate change. Of the 1 billion food insecure people in the world, more than 30% are in South Asia. This open access book discusses the impact of human-induced global climate change on the regional climate and monsoons of the Indian subcontinent, adjoining Indian Ocean and the Himalayas.

It documents the regional climate change projections based on the climate models used in the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) and climate change modeling studies using. Adam Sobel is a professor at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Engineering School.

He studies the dynamics of climate and weather phenomena, particularly in the tropics. In recent years he has become particularly interested in understanding the risks to human society from extreme weather events and climate change.

Climatology (from Greek κλίμα, klima, "place, zone"; and -λογία, -logia) or climate science is the scientific study of climate, scientifically defined as weather conditions averaged over a period of time.

This modern field of study is regarded as a branch of the atmospheric sciences and a subfield of physical geography, which is one of the Earth sciences. This book aims to explain how the governance of climate change adaptation and mitigation is being shaped in the region and how climate change is impacting upon the governance of natural resources.

Although the focus is on South Asia, the editors draw a wide range of contributions from northern and southern communities and across various agro.

The region consists of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. Topographically, it is dominated by the Indian Plate and defined largely by the Indian Ocean on the south, and the Himalayas, Karakoram.

According to the report's findings the total climate change cost in South Asia will increase over time and will be prohibitively high in the long term.

"South Asia is a hot-spot for future climate change impacts," said Yangyang Xu, an assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences in the College of Geosciences at Texas A&M.

Extreme. A number of observation based and modelling based studies have documented significant changes in temperature and precipitation extremes in Indo-Pak region of South Asia and South Asia as whole.

Haze may be contributing to warming in South Asia: study. Northwest India seen during winters is not only causing problems to people on the ground but also impacting atmospheric climate.

A new study by an international group of researchers has found that the composition of a class of carbon-carrying aerosols in the haze changes as it. With climate change and environmental degradation being major issues in the world today, it is imperative for governments within a regional setting to collaborate on initiatives, harmonize their policies and develop strategies to counter threats.

In South Asia, several attempts have been made to create a common framework for action in implementing .Climate—Wet and Dry, Hot and Cold. Half of the climate zones that exist on Earth can be found in South Asia.
