New book proposes solutions to social and ecological challenges posed by climate change

t," added Dr. Cinner. "For those that depend on the sea for their livelihood, these changes could be devastating. But there are options to reduce climate change impacts on both reef ecosystems and reef-dependant societies."

McClanahan and Cinner combine their fields of expertise to provide a holistic overview on how climate change will affect coastal ecosystems and the well-being of communities reliant on these resources. The book starts by focusing on the impacts of climate change on the world's oceans, coral reef systems, and fish populations to provide the context to the challenges facing coastal communities, fisheries managers, and local governments. Chapters on the vulnerability of coastal societies outline how people are likely to be impacted by climate change and their options for adaptation. In-depth research with local fishermen reveals how, if unassisted, they may inadvertently respond to climate change in ways that actually make things worse for coral reefs and themselves.

The authors develop a framework for climate action to provide a basis for solutions that are transferable to other contexts beyond coral reefs. Suggested courses of action are provided in chapters discussing the complex but critical need for building the adaptive capacity of society and maintaining resources at levels that will avoid ecological and social catastrophes.

"This new book offers a valuable resource and a course of action for resource managers," said Dr. Caleb McClennen, Director of WCS's Marine Program. "It also highlights the importance of multi-dimensional plans including local communities, scientists, managers, and governments that reflect local situations and needs for long-term solutions."

From Fiji to Kenya to Glover's Reef, Dr. McClanahan's research has been examining the ecology, fisheries, climate change effects, and management of coral reefs at key sites throughout the world. This work has been supported by the John D. and C
