Global change puts increasing pressure on social-ecological systems. This book features outcomes of research of SASSCAL and aims to draw the attention of a broad readership. The presented studies provide assessments of the values of resources, analyse long term environmental changes, identify risks and challenges involved and offer solutions and pathways towards climate change adaption and sustainable land management.
Chapters are: Climate, Water resources, Risk management, Rangelands, Food security, Forest resources, Land cover dynamics, and Biodiversity. Included are also a task overview and recommendations for further reading.
