Climate and Development journal


SEI-CDEV-cover-175x243Climate and Development is the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the links between climate and development, with a focus on the global south. It is hosted by the Stockholm Environment Institute and published by Taylor & Francis.
Climate and Development is of direct and vital relevance to academics, policy analysts, consultants, negotiators, industrial and non-governmental organisations, and to all those working to ensure a better understanding of the links between climate and development.
The journal was born in 2007 while SEI staff were working on the IPCC’s fourth assessment report. They noticed that more peer-reviewed research from the developing world, and by developing world authors, was urgently needed to underpin solid conclusions about how climate change will impact on people and communities.
In 2009, SEI and Earthscan (now Earthscan/Routledge/Taylor & Francis) published Climate and Development as a move to meet the need for peer-reviewed research from developing countries. The journal is now in its fourth volume.
Climate and Development is published by SEI and Earthscan/Taylor & Francis. It is supported by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) and works in partnership with the Global Change System for Analysis, Research and Training (START).
Praise for the journal
"Interdisciplinary research is key to addressing the most pressing problems of our time – Climate and Development provides an important platform at the interface of these two crucial disciplines."
- Prof. Dr Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, Director, Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
"The journal Climate and Development fills a vital gap in the literature, essentially because decisions related to climate change and development would both need to be based on the nexus between these two issues. The Journal, therefore, covers extremely important space, and it is inevitable that its value will be enhanced over time."
- R. K. Pachauri, Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
