Abstract and Keywords
Land use is heavily involved with climate change concerns, and this chapter discusses and reviews the interrelationships among the vulnerability, adaptation, and mitigation aspects of land use and climate change. It reviews a number of key studies on climate change issues regarding land productivity, land use, and land management (LPLULM), identifying key findings, pointing out research needs, and raising economic/policy questions to ponder. Overall, this chapter goes beyond previous reviews and simultaneously treats the troika of vulnerability, mitigation, and adaptation aspects of the issue, which will provide readers with a more comprehensive, multifaceted grasp of the spectrum of current issues regarding LPLULM and climate change.
