- Nationally Determined Contribution to increase climate resilience and decrease vulnerability for agriculture and food security sector, by adopting disaster prevention actions such as early warning systems.
A climate change monitoring system integrates satellite observations, ground-based data and forecast models to monitor and forecast changes in the weather and climate. A historical record of spot measurements is built up over time, which provides the data to enable statistical analysis and the identification of mean values, trends and variations. The better the information available, the more the climate can be understood and the more accurately future conditions can be assessed, at the local, regional, national and global level.
The Climate Technology Centre is seeking proposals for the technologies for the design of a regional strategic plan for the coastal management and adaptation to climate change in the province of Buenos Aires.
This webinar will be presented by CSIR, member organization of the CTCN Consortium.
The scope of activities of the Agency is preparation and dissemination of warnings and notifications in the event of expected natural, hydrometeorological and geological disasters and adverse events, as well as in cases of forecasts on extreme environmental pollution for the purpose of ensuring of the state security and safety; preparation of hydrometeorological forecast on river basis, water bodies, the Black Sea Territorial Waters; engineering-ecological assessment of geological processes; preparation and dissemination of information on the state of environment; management of the state un
Science and Technology Policy Institute have served as a top think tank in science and technology. Ranked top 16 in the 2015 Global Think Tank Rankings, STEPI guides the development of the national policy agenda and leads foresight research in Korea. STEPI has been designated as the implementing agency for science, technology, and innovation ODA by the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning.
The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) is a research and academic type of an institution established in 1975 with the mission to provide research-based policy solutions that sustainably reduce poverty and end hunger and malnutrition. It provides research-based policy solutions to sustainably reduce poverty and end hunger and malnutrition in developing countries. It is a research centre of the CGIAR Consortium, a worldwide partnership engaged in agricultural research for development.
An Early Warning System (EWS) is a set of coordinated procedures through which information on foreseeable hazards is collected and processed to warn of the possible occurrence of a natural phenomenon that could cause disasters. These systems are acquiring more importance in view of increased climate variability and the ability to implement them has become fundamental for improving capacity to adapt to climate change.
Description: There are two types of EWS:
This paper is the outcome of a seminar about the impacts of climate change on development and economic growth, as well as food security and trade in sub-Saharan Africa. The seminar aimed at identifying the economic policy issues underlying the problem and suggesting the relevant solutions. The paper notices that little effort has been made to mainstream climate changes into African countries’ economic planning. Therefore, it calls on governments to undertake “common sense mitigation” - efforts that would cost little or nothing.
Over decades, a relatively small group of anthropologists have contributed to the understanding of how societies deal with environmental change and climate variability. Those contributions aside, the discipline is not strongly positioned in public debate about - or research and action on - anthropogenic global warming. This paper argues that environmental anthropology, and cultural studies of climate variability, offer key directions for future research and advocacy on climate change.
