520 "Climate Change and Island and Coastal VulnerabilityÌí ©s
the outcome of a selection of peer reviewedÂ edited papers
presented at the International Workshop on Climate Change
and Island Vulnerability (IWCCI) held at Kadmat Island,
Lakshadweep, India in October 2010. Marine and Coastal
Biodiversity, Sea level Rise Vulnerability, Fisheries,
Climate Change Impact on Livelihood Options, Water and
Sanitation in Island Ecosystem and Mitigation, Adaptation
and Governance are the focal themes.Â The basic concept
conveyed in the book is that biodiversity of islands is to
be protected as a natural mechanism to mitigate climate
change. Probability recurrence of mass coral bleaching and
the management of coral reefs and their future protection
are discussed in this book. Marine Productivity and
Climate Change for the last ten thousand years in the
Arabian Sea have been examined with core records. Green
technology is suggested as an important tool for
mitigation and adaptation programmes in Climate Change.
Measures taken to project Biomass utilisation of Islands
as an energy source is delineated. Climate Change will
have a potential threat on human health. Improved
sanitation packages and models that are cost effective and
environment-friendly for IslandsÂ are uniquely presented
in this book.
