The mobilisation centred on the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP 21) is an
opportunity to highlight the vulnerability of environments and populations in
the South in the face of climate warming. Some tropical regions are already
suffering from its effects, with heat waves in the Sahel, disturbances to
monsoon systems, the melting of the Andean glaciers, threats to biodiversity,
a rise in sea level and other features. Research conducted by IRD and its
partners provides key knowledge for better understanding of the complexity of
these phenomena. This book is a synthesis in three parts: observing and
understanding climate change, analysing its main impacts on environments and
setting societies and national public policies at the heart of the climate
challenge. Focused on the capacity for resilience of populations and
ecosystems in the face of trends in the climate, the book explores solutions
that reconcile mitigation and adaptation in response to climate change,
conservation of the environment and a reduction of inequalities. The work is
both well documented and explanatory, reviewing operations and the results of
research that is firmly involved and interdisciplinary, closely associating
partners in the North and the South.
