Reviews

The Trias of energy, development and poverty must be thought, explained and understood together. Frauke Urban's book does so in a truly comprehensive and highly accessible way. The book is essential reading for all students and professionals who are interested in the Trias and who want to understand the deep political nexus that shapes so much of current global politics. - Prof. Dr. Markus Lederer, Professor of International Relations and expert in carbon governance, Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany Whilst energy use remains tightly coupled to economic growth, how to square the need for access to modern energy services with development challenges in a carbon constrained world represents one of the most challenging conundrums of our time - one of relevance across all of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. In this volume, Urban continues her track record of publishing accessible introductions to core aspects of the field of climate change, energy and development, once again offering a text that will be of value to both students and teachers alike, as well as to informed policy makers and practitioners wishing to extend their knowledge of this field. The inclusion of reflexive exercises at the end of each chapter add to its pedagogic value, making it of particular value to those designing new modules in this rapidly expanding field. - Prof. Dr. David Ockwell, Professor of Geography and co-convenor of the Climate and Energy research domain in the ESRC STEPS Centre, University of Sussex, UK This is a must read for all who are interested in energy, development and climate change. An excellent reading resource addressing some of the world's most pressing challenges, namely how to reduce energy poverty and achieve development, while mitigating climate change. - Dr. Johan Nordensvard, Senior Lecturer in Political Science and expert in the social implications of energy and environment, Uppsala University and University of Linkoeping, Sweden This book comprehensively introduces the reader to the global transition that is underway in energy production, consumption and access and the implications of these changes for economic and human development. It recognises that progress in tackling the twin problems of climate change and highly unequal access to energy - energy profligacy alongside energy poverty - is proceeding too slowly. In a concise but authoritative fashion the chapters examine the complex relationships between the environmental, economic and political processes that shape this energy transition. Practical exercises at the end of each chapter encourage the reader to analyse open access datasets and explore key policy documents and scientific assessments. This excellent book is essential reading for students, academics and policymakers wanting a multidisciplinary account of the ways in which energy and development are interacting and what this means for the future. - Professor David Hulme, Executive Director, Global Development Institute and FutureDAMS Research Programme, University of Manchester, UK
