520    "Climate Change and Island and Coastal VulnerabilityÌí ©s 
       the outcome of a selection of peer reviewed  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.  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 Islands  are uniquely presented 
       in this book.
