About this product
- DescriptionWith the global population expected to reach nine billion by 2050, our capacity to provide eugh food, water and energy relies on our understanding and management of the complex interdependencies in the climate-energy-water nexus. This book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date analysis of the interdependencies between these sectors and the kck-on consequences of those interactions for other sectors, such as food production and biodiversity conservation. The interdisciplinary nature of the book across the three sectors of climate, energy and water means that it will be valuable for advanced students, researchers and policymakers across a broad range of fields, including environmental/energy/water/climate policy, environmental ecomics, climate science, hydrology, ecology and geography.

Jamie worked for non-governmental environmental organizations in Australia and internationally from 1989 to 2007; previous positions include director of WWF's Global Freshwater Programme from 2001 to 2007. Jamie's research focuses on better governance of the interlinked issues of water management, energy and food supply, responses to climate change and conservation of biological diversity. His recent research includes assessments of the impacts of renewable energy and carbon sequestration policies on water resources and ecosystems globally, and also the water-use implications of emission reduction measures proposed in Australia. His work also considers the energy costs of water sector adaptation to climate change. He directs two large research programs on irrigation and water management in Africa and on hydropower, food and water in the Mekong region. Jamie is also chair of the Board of Water Stewardship Australia.
