This timely Handbook draws together insightful analyses of natural resource management challenges and solutions in the face of sustainable development targets and a changing global climate.
 
Expert contributors illustrate the ways in which resource- and region-specific challenges shape national and global strategies, exploring the institutional aspects of resource management and their implications for policy making. They consider the economic, legal, environmental, social, financial and technological dimensions of resource management, consolidating interdisciplinary knowledge and setting the agenda for future research. Advancing scientific knowledge in the field, the Handbook offers a roadmap for well-informed policy making, highlighting the uncertainties and risks associated with climate change, energy and sustainability transition, and the need for a forward-looking approach to resource management.
 
Assembling state-of-the-art contributions to provide a clearer understanding of the transformative policy developments ahead, this Handbook is crucial reading for academics and researchers of resource management, public policy, sustainability, energy transition, climate change, and environmental studies. It also offers critical empirical insights for policymakers and practitioners developing innovative strategies to meet sustainability targets.

Critical Acclaim
‘This book contains excellent insights into the management of natural resources in the face of climate and sustainable development targets in many different parts of the world. A must for practitioners and researchers.’
– Rick van der Ploeg, University of Oxford, UK

‘The Handbook of Sustainable Politics and Economics of Natural Resources covers a wide range of topics associated with the management of non-renewable resources. The thread connecting the various research path explored by the authors is the belief that lessons learned from experience alone are not a good enough compass to guide policy making in today’s deeply interconnected and fast changing economy. The importance of tailoring policy making to local circumstances and the type of non-renewable resource is emphasized throughout the book, and its implications are discussed with regard to the path and speed of energy transition policies in resource-rich countries. A good read that successfully puts non-renewable resource policies in context with other important economic and social imperatives.’
– Silvana Tordo, World Bank, US
