Abstract

As Hy Dao and Jaap van Woerden point out in Chapter 14, United Nations support of improved data streams and technical assistance is essential to this kind of research. The authors also underscore the myriad challenges of defi nitional issues in climate-change analysis, including problems of scale—global, regional, national and ommunity—defi nitions of coastlines, boundaries and expanses, omissions in the production and dissemination of data and measurement of onsumptionbased versus supply-based emissions, among others.
