"...a beneficial addition to the literature that focuses on transfer of technologies associated with climate change... the Technical Summary would be valuable to any who are interested in the subject of climate change and development of enviornmentally sound technologies to alleviate the possible results of climate change. Each section of the book contains a superb reference list providing further resources on specific topics. I would recommend this book to policy-makers and 'change agents' who will be promoting adoption and implementation of environmentally sound technologies and to researchers and developers who focus on issues of climate change."

Effective global response to climate change requires the development and transfer of environmentally sound technologies between and within countries, both for adapting to climate change as well as for mitigating the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. This Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides a state-of-the-art overview of how to achieve and enhance this transfer. 185 eminent experts from around the world provide accurate, unbiased, policy-relevant information on technology transfer to serve industry, policy-makers, environmental organisations, and researchers in global change, technology, engineering and economics.
