The three volumes are not only valuable handbooks with a lot of expertise. But they are also remarkable because of two characteristics: First it deals with the whole range of issues covering the current discussion on environmental challenges: climate change, food security, desertification, water management, health, disaster resilience. And it does not stop at elaborating the challenges from a scientific point of view: it develops strategies for the international community to cope with these challenges. That is what makes this book so extremely valuable.
