News A call for contributors to the first ever book on "The Finance of Climate Security" to be published in early 2008.

Climate Change poses a fundamental threat to the security and prosperity of developed and developing nations alike (Margaret Beckett, 2007). It is not just a climate issue but a security issue and we are inviting chapters on the FINANCIAL aspects of:

- energy security

- food security

- water security

- border security

The above list is by no means exhaustive, and contributions on other relevant topics will also be considered. Given the intended practical nature of the book, contributions from practitioners in businesses, social entrepreneurs, NGOs and government are very welcome.

Theoretical papers should be between 4,000 and 8,000 words and case studies between 3,000 and 5,000 words in length.

Important Dates:

· Last date for the submission of 1-page abstracts for chapters: September 15, 2007.

· Acceptance of 1-page abstracts notified to contributors: not later than September 30, 2007.

· Deadline for the submission of chapters following acceptance of abstract: 31 October 2007.
