AS I SEE IT

John Lemons*

ABSTRACT: I discuss why integration of global climate change and human development aid programs requires consideration of some understudied uncertainties in making projections of future climate and environmental conditions at local and regional scales, and further, the value-laden policy consequences of dealing with uncertainties for national and international development programs. Additionally, I propose that conflicts between the interests of humans and other species be given greater attention than has been done by those involved in human development aid.


KEY WORDS: Climate change adaptation · Human development aid · Scientific uncertainties
