May Book of the Month
May’s Book of the Month is:
This book provides an engaging and accessible overview of the impact that climate change is having in Africa – and its ongoing effect on development.
It outlines the likely results of climate change on different parts of the continent and different sectors such as water, food, forests and cities. It also envisions what the future might look like for Africa in a carbon-constrained world.
Real-life case studies are used to bring current issues to life, ranging from natural disasters to bio fuels, conflict and the oil industry.
This book will make a welcome addition to university library collections where it’ll be of great use to undergraduates across a number of disciplines including science, geography and politics. In addition, the accessible writing makes it a book general readers can use in their local public or community library to read for pleasure and learn.
Climate Change in Africa is part of Zed Books’ African Arguments series, published in association with the International African Institute and written for students and general readers. The series addresses both the strategic and political issues facing the continent today. Zed Books and International African Institute generously donate many books from this series, enabling us to provide readers across the continent with well-researched and up-to-date information to support their studies and learning.
