Guest Editor: Nobuo Mimura (Center for Water Environmental Studies, Ibaraki University, Hitachi, Ibaraki, Japan)


Effective management of natural resources in the face of climate change relies on accurate assessment of and response to the resultant impacts. The articles in CR SPECIAL 6 cover geographical regions in Europe, Africa, America, Asia and the Pacific. The subjects of impact and response assessment include water resources, coastal systems, forests, agriculture, land use, and human settlement and health. The SPECIAL serves as a record of the current status of the country studies and can also be used as a source for the IPCC assessment.
