Review quote

The important debates about climate change and poverty reduction usually occur in separate policy spheres. This compelling book argues that the impacts of climate change and poverty are increasingly interconnected. I highly recommend this timely and well-written volume because it shows how poverty alleviation and equitable growth can occur in the face of climate change-if policy makers are willing to address climate change and economic development in a holistic manner. -- Christopher D. Merrett, Western Illinois University This edited collection provides a refreshing breadth in the perspectives that it presents and the issues that it tackles...Part One of the book...is particularly interesting, providing an analysis of the influence of the poor as a voting block in India, positing that divisions along ethnic, caste, religious, and other lines make the likelihood of India's poor converging on a collective action agenda against poverty unlikely, despite India's democratic electoral system.
