This publication is one among a chain of IGBP syntheses drawing jointly findings in worldwide environmental switch during the last decade or so. One concentration of IGBP actions is the procedure for research, study and coaching (START). Co-sponsored by way of the WCRP and IHDP, commence establishes nearby learn networks for international swap technological know-how in constructing international locations, stimulates and incorporates out international swap examine in constructing areas of the realm, and builds ability to adopt such learn at own, institutional and neighborhood degrees. numerous local international switch networks were verified, and lots more and plenty neighborhood study has been finished within the final 5 years or so. during this ebook, paintings in relation to 4 of the older begin areas, Southern Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia and East Asia, should be used as case stories to demonstrate regional-global linkages in Earth method technology.
