Climate Change and Small Island States: Power, Knowledge and the South Pacific (Earthscan Climate) - Jon Barnett

Small Island Developing States are often depicted as being among the most vulnerable of ... more

all places to the effects of climate change, and
they are a cause celebre of many involved in
climate science, politics and the media. Yet while
small island developing states are much talked
about, the production of both scientific knowledge
and policies to protect the rights of these
nations and their people has been remarkably slow.
This book is the first to apply a critical
approach to climate change science and policy
processes in the South Pacific region. It shows
how groups within politically and scientifically
powerful countries appropriate the issue of island
vulnerability in ways that do not do justice to
the lives of island people. It argues that the
ways in which islands and their inhabitants are
represented in climate science and politics seldom
leads to meaningful responses to assist them to
adapt to climate change. Throughout, the authors
focus on the hitherto largely ignored social
impacts of climate change, and demonstrate that
adaptation and mitigation policies cannot be
effective without understanding the social systems
and values of island societies.
