The book principally addresses climate change and describes the remedial strategies for developing countries based on the 'Clean Development Mechanism' of the 'Kyoto Protocol'. It provides a very comprehensive account of the array of proposals and economic instruments devised by the international community - including the Joint Implementation and Emissions Trading initiatives of the Protocol - to abate global warming. The effects of other major atmospheric, land and water pollutants from industries and domestic sources are also covered.

The environmental hourglass is rapidly running out.

Appendix 10, Islands-At-Risk from Sea-Level Rise: Evacuation and Resettlement Contingency Plans
An extension of work on Appendix 10 was undertaken on 14-15 August 2006, in Male, the Maldives.
In August 2006, a workshop hosted by the Maldives Ministry of Environment in Male enabled a Protocol on Environmental Refugees to be drafted with key comments from a number of African, Asian and Latin American countries. Part of this draft formed the basis of the island state’s legal stance to the United Nations and international community on its environmental rights.
The following quotes the protocol of Environmental Refugees:
