Format: Paperback
This book is based on the activity results of The Integrated Research System for Sustainability Science (IR3S).

According to IR3S, 'sustainability science is a newly emerging academic field that seeks to understand the dynamic linkages between global, social, and human systems, and to provide a holistic perspective on the concerns and
issues between and within these systems'.

Reading this book, we can know about the structure of climate change and strategies toward a low-carbon society systematically from various points of view. That is why the book subtitle is 'A Holistic Approach'.

This book forms part of a series on sustainability science. The other titles in this series are:

Sustainability Science: A Multidisciplinary Approach

Establishing a Resource-circulating Society in Asia: Challenges and Opportunities

Designing Our Future: Perspectives on Bioproduction Ecosystems and Humanity (Sustainability Science Series)

Achieving Global Sustainability: Policy Recommendations
