Preface Tomorrow Is Today

Felix Dodds, Andrew Higham and Richard Sherman

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.

(Albert Einstein)

Increasingly, climate change policy is being recognized and addressed across the entire multilateral framework. It is no longer the sole province of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC); yet there remains a vast amount of work to fully mainstream climate change within the multilateral system. Indeed, the peace and security implications of climate change are only just beginning to be acknowledged. This book started out as a contribution to the preparations for the Poznan UNFCCC meeting in 2008. As the authors took stock of the landscape, they felt that it was more important to be seen outside of the UNFCCC meetings. The issues raised in this book are broader than those that are going to be addressed in the climate change negotiations.
