Review quote

'The book will appeal and be instructive to members of the scientific community who already consider or wish to learn more about the human element to environmental change ... provides a useful examination of how the people of Vietnam have responded to these changes and the social vulnerability, adaptation and resiliance that governs how they will respond to changes in the future.' - Land Degradation and Development, M.Simpson 'Living with Environmental Change: Social Vulnerability, Adaptation and Resilience in Vietnam is itself a rich resource which will help to broaden and deepen students' and scholars' understanding of environmental change in transitional economies.' - The Journal of Development Studies
