Climate Change Modeling for Local Adaptation in the Hindu Kush - Himalayan Region
Armando Lamadrid, Ilan Kelman
Emerald Group Publishing, 2012 - Nature - 237 pages
This publication presents a portrait of the social advantages and limitations of climate change related modeling in the Hindu Kush-Himalayan (HKH) region. It addresses the implied but largely uncritiqued relationships between scientific modeling knowledge and local adaptation responses, as well as theoretical perspectives on modeling and adaptation.
