Environmental Change and Globalization

This chapter examines current efforts to address the challenges associated with global change process, and discusses the limitations of addressing each process in isolation. It first draws attention to the ways that current interventions intended to reduce outcome differentials, decrease vulnerability; and change the processes may miss some important interactions between global environmental change and globalization. The chapter emphasizes the need for integrated responses that recognize both the interactions between the two processes and the linkages between outcomes, contexts, and feedbacks. The double exposure framework shows that there is nothing inevitable about processes and outcomes of global change. Human decisions, values, and behaviors drive global change processes, and they shape the contexts in which these changes are experienced. Double exposure shows that it is possible to use global change processes to create a more equitable, resilient, and sustainable future that contributes to increased human security.
