Climate change in Cambodia
SNV 2015
Cambodia is considered one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change impacts such as floods and droughts. Of the four top economic sectors - garment, tourism, construction and agriculture - the latter accounted for 57...
Pulse crops and sustainability: a framework to evaluate multiple benefits
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations 2016
The potential of pulses - beans, peas, chickpeas, lentils, and other pulses - to help address future global food security, nutrition and environmental sustainability needs has been acknowledged through the UN declaration of the 2016 I...
Developing beans that can beat the heat
Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research 2015
In Africa and Latin America, the production of beans ( Phaseolus vulgaris ) is highly vulnerable to climate change impacts, which include higher temperatures and more frequent drought. Within the last 15 years, CGIAR researchers have ...
Research on biodiversity and climate change at a distance: collaboration networks between Europe and Latin America and the Caribbean
PLoS ONE 2015
Biodiversity loss and climate change are both globally significant issues that must be addressed through collaboration across countries and disciplines. With the December 2015 COP21 climate conference in Paris and the recent c...
Climate change and the Caribbean: review and response
M.A. Taylor / Caribbean Studies 2012
Caribbean economies, lifestyles, activities, practices and operational cycles are intricately linked to climate, making them vulnerable to its variations and/or changes. As examples, climate extremes impact agriculture, fisheries, hea...
Climate change and health in Israel: adaptation policies for extreme weather events
M., S. Green; N. Groag Pri-or; G. Capeluto / Israel Journal of Health Policy Research 2013

How can climate information more effectively inform adaptation?
G. Srinivasan; K. M. Rafisura; A. R. Subbiah / Climate Research 2011

Breaking down the response to extreme temperature rise
M. Stafford Smith; L. Horrocks; A. Harvey; C. Hamilton / Royal Society Publishing 2011
With weakening prospects of prompt mitigation, it is increasingly likely that the world will experience a four degrees Celsius, or more, global temperature rise. Typically, long-term adaptation planning for extreme climate change face...
