World Social Science Report 2013
Changing Global Environments 

The report includes 100 articles written by 150 authors from 41 countries all over the world. Authors represent some 24 disciplines, mainly in the social sciences.
 
An in depth review of transformation from the OECD: confronting climate and broader processes of environmental change with social science. This is to address our world's priority problems from energy and water, biodiversity and land use, to urbanisation, migration and education.

The book (free online or download via a Uni etc.) is diving into the means to understand "changing environments in terms of social processes and as framework for finding concrete solutions towards sustainability."
