    Surface layer surveys covering a range of climate change / development intersections. If you're already familiar with some of the climate change literature, you'd be better off reading new IPCC AR5 sections. This collection is simply too laden with repeated statements like "we need to develop capacity-building programs," "transparency and inclusiveness are essentials for success", and "mainstreaming climate change adaptation into development planning is challenging" for this to be a more useful volume. However, I highly recommend Busby's piece on climate change and security - by far the best piece in this collection.
