Developing countries are the most vulnerable to damage and disruption, but the least equipped, in terms of finance and expertise, to monitor and react to climate change.
However, they want economic growth and increased energy consumption to meet the aspirations of their people. And many fear that the global warming threat could be used by the industrialised world as an excuse to block their path of development.
This book looks at the international debate on global warming.
