    Publication date: 
    Thursday, January 1, 2009
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    According to this video, the areas around the Himalayas are most affected by melting glaciers, a product of climate change. This video tells the story of the Jhelum Basin experiences in adapting to climate change in the Himalayas. Made by Wetlands International South Asia programme, it explains the issues around and the role of wetlands in these mountain areas in regulating water flows and mitigating the impacts of climate change.

Users are prohibited from any commercial, non-free resale, or redistribution without explicit written permission from CCAFS or the data-developing institutions.

  • Free Access Climate Change Data of Worldbank

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    Freely available climate and climate-related data is essential to catalyze the changes in policies, investments and technologies that will be needed if we are to move towards a climate-smart future. The Climate Change Knowledge Portal is a central hub of information, data and reports about climate change around the world. With this portal you can query, map, compare, chart and summarize key climate and climate-related information. Open data: all of the climate data featured on the Climate Change Knowledge Portal has been published as open data resources.

  • Climate Risk and Adaptation Country Profiles

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday, January 1, 2014
    Objective: 

    This interactive map of 51 climate risk and adaptation profiles offers a platform to guide access, synthesis and analysis of relevant country data and information for disaster risk reduction and adaptation to climate change. The profiles aim to provide a quick reference for development practitioners so that they can better integrate climate resilience in development planning and operations.

  • Food Security CASE Maps

    Publication date: 
    Tuesday, January 1, 2013
    Objective: 

    MarkSimGCM is a stochastic weather generating tool, which uses the well-known MarkSim application, a tool that generates simulated daily weather data specifically designed for use in the tropics, including rainfall, maximum and minimum temperatures and solar radiation. It provides files of daily weather data that are completely compatible with the DSSAT (Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer) crop modeling system
