Format: Digital (Free)[serial]This report provides a framework for defining adaptation gaps and a preliminary assessment of the gap between adaptation needs and reality. It proposes an approach for identifying and assessing the current state and action in key adaptation areas, and comparing these with the potential now, and in the future, for additional adaptation to reduce risks. The report is a response to calls for UNEP to produce a report on adaptation gaps to complement the annual Emissions Gap report.PermalinkThe place to learn about monitoring the weather and climate from space.PermalinkPermalink
One of the most urgent challenges facing countries across the world today is how to achieve economic prosperity and development while also combating climate change.
The Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, and its flagship project, The New Climate Economy, have been set up to help governments, businesses and society make better-informed decisions on these crucial issues.
The Commission brings together expert research institutes from five continents, overseen by an International Council comprising former heads of government and finance ministers and leade ...PermalinkVulnerability assessments (VAs) are central to shaping climate change adaptation decisions, providing a basis for devising measures that will minimise or avoid harm to humans and ecological systems. Yet the wide variety of VA approaches can be confusing for practitioners, creating uncertainty about the ‘right’ approach. This paper reviews and compares VAs undertaken in Indonesia and Tunisia to distil key approaches, components and lessons. It begins with a general overview of definitions, approaches and challenges with conducting VAs, and then proposes a framework for analysing and comparing t ...PermalinkEuropean Climate Support Network (ECSN); World Meteorological Organization (WMO) ; Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) - DWD, 1999-[...]Climate monitoring in Europe used to be done mainly on a national scale. As scientific interest is more and more focusing on the regional cross-border implications of a possible climate change, routine monitoring of regional climate for whole Europe is becoming more and more important. The need for a more co-ordinated approach to the preparation of climate system monitoring information led to the idea to publish an annual regional climate monitoring Bulletin. The eleventh session of the WMO Regional Association VI (RA VI), which took place in Oslo in May 1994, approved the proposal.

For this purpose, climate data for each survey cluster are interpolated using daily weather-station records from the national network. The findings reveal that rainfall shocks have a statistically significant and robust impact on child health in the short run for both weight-for-height and height-for-age, and the incidence of diarrhea. The impacts of weather shocks on health are of considerable magnitude; however, children seem to catch up wi ...PermalinkCenter for Space Physics, 2004-[...]CAWSES is an international program sponsored by SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics) established with an aim of significantly enhancing our understanding of the space environment and its impacts on life and society. The main functions of CAWSES are to help coordinate international activities in observations, modeling, and applications crucial to achieving this understanding, to involve scientists in both developed and developing countries, and to provide educational opportunities for students of all levels.PermalinkThe Historical Hurricane Tracks website includes tropical cyclone data and information on coastal county hurricane strike data through 2011 while also providing links to detailed reports on the life history and effects of U.S. tropical cyclones since 1958.Permalink
