Benefits and costs of nitrogen fertilizer management for climate change mitigation: focus on India and MexicoClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016This report contributes to the project “Financing Low Emissions Agriculture,” led by the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS). The project aims to analyze financial options and gather empirical evidence to build business cases for supporting transitions to low emissions agriculture in developing countries.Document
Benefits and costs of climate change mitigation technologies in paddy rice: focus on Bangladesh and VietnamClimate Change Agriculture Food Security, 2016Existing evidence and expert opinion indicate that AWD is very promising in terms of its potential to increase farmers’ yields and profits and GHG reduction potential in Bangladesh and Vietnam.Document
Synthesis report on experiences with ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reductionSecretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, 2016Policymakers are increasingly calling for an ecosystem-based approach to climate change adaptation (EbA), which “incorporates biodiversity and ecosystem services into an overall adaptation strategy to help people to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change”.OrganisationThe Convention was opened for signature on 5 June 1992 at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (the Rio "Earth Summit").DocumentInternational Monetary Fund, 2016Small developing states are disproportionately vulnerable to natural disasters. On average, the annual cost of disasters for small states is nearly 2 percent of GDP—more than four times that for larger countries. This reflects a higher frequency of disasters, adjusted for land area, as well as greater vulnerability to severe disasters.DocumentDeutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH, 2013Tropical coastal areas are highly vulnerable to climate change. Coastal ecosystems can support the adaptation of both human and natural systems but only if they are sustainably managed. The conservation, restoration or sustainable management of ecosystems to provide ecosystem services that help people adapt to climate change is known as ‘ecosystem-based adaptation’ (EbA).Document
The role of human rights in climate change adaptation: evidence from civil society in Cambodia and KenyaDanish Institute for International Studies, 2014Inconsistent climate change policies increase the vulnerability of marginalised populations and lead to resource conflicts. A human rights-based approach can help protect the adaptive capacities of climate vulnerable populations.DocumentFride, 2015Many climate experts agree that the Sahel is a key hotspot for global climate change. Throughout the region, higher temperatures, increasingly variable rainfall, and more frequent droughts and storms will interact with high levels of vulnerability and low adaptive capacities to significantly challenge continued development progress.DocumentDanish Institute for International Studies, 2015The Government of Zambia is making important progress in establishing a national framework for climate change adaptation. However, there is a need for more attention to the crucial role of district level institutions such as Local Government, local sector agencies and NGOs.DocumentInternational Institute for Environment and Development, 2015As the largest pot of climate funding available to developing countries, the Green Climate Fund (GCF) holds huge promise. As it enters into operation, national institutions, including government, can apply to access GCF’s resources ‘directly’.
