This book analyzes how the management of natural
resources can affect climate change and how climate
change affects energy, food, fisheries, producing
industries and national adaptation strategies in Turkey’s
perspective. The schematic diagrams, tables and graphs
have been included to make the book more illustrative.
Resource management is analysed from the perspective
of a capital conversion-based model of development.
One important conclusion of the book is that integrating
climate change concerns into resource management
implies that some natural resources will need to be
stranded in order to meet mitigation commitments
compatible with the goal of limiting global warming to
well below 2 degrees Celsius and pursuing efforts to limit
the increase in the average value of global temperature
to 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels.
