As the tenth of anniversary of the Kyoto Protocol was approaching the first thing which came to my mind was “ten years and still counting” – when we should be talking about the results achieved and the progress made we are still defining the targets to be achieved. This prompted me to go for another book as a sequel to the one produced on the fifth anniversary of the Kyoto Protocol. Just like the long drawn and complex multi-lateral negotiations of the Protocol itself, it has been a challenging task to put together over fifty chapters by approximately seventy authors from nearly forty countries. In the process (just like the protocol negotiations) some authors came on board while others left-although the effort was to include the perspective from all major players but Russian, Indian and Chinese points of views are not that well represented as I would have liked to. Having said that it has been an interesting process to communicate with all the different authors (from different countries and different continents – some of whom I have never met) and in the end producing this interesting collection of chapters (which I must agree would not have been possible without full cooperation from the authors as well as from the publisher). In this long drawn process there have been a few roadblocks such as a car accident I was involved in, which has changed my perspective on life, and how things do not always happen as planned. Although the plan was to launch this book in 2007, one thing or the other delayed the project but it will finally see the light of the day in 2008 and I am sure my colleagues from different disciplines like academia, policy makers, professionals and scientists will find it a useful book.
