- DocumentCanadian Center of Science and Education, 2014This study attempts to assess perception level of rural people to climate change in selected communities in Cross River State, Nigeria. Results showed 71.7 per cent of the people are aware of climate change. They also indicated that the onset of rains is now delayed while cessation is earlier against the trend in the past.DocumentWorld Economic Forum, 2014This report argues that nations and communities will need to adapt while at the same time seeking mitigation solutions to climate change. It highlights an increase in the interest of the policy, business and academic communities to the challenge of adaptation and sees it as something that will need to be continued as more people feel the impacts of climate change.DocumentSouth African Journal of Animal Science, 2013Historic climate changes have already played a role in the demise or development of agricultural production systems. This review article gives insight into the possible effects of climate change on their production parameters. The results and predictions of global studies and simulations are summarized with special emphasis, where possible, on the southern African scenario.DocumentOverseas Development Institute, 2013This analysis of Kenya’s Vision 2030 initiative suggests that over the next decade, global trade patterns will be transformed by climate change, international mitigation, and natural-resource scarcity, resulting in an inevitable shift over time to a low-carbon global economy. This report has a particular focus on the energy, agriculture and manufacturing sectors.Document
Tackling climate change through livestock: A global assessment of emissions and mitigation opportunitiesFood and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, 2013It has been known for several years that livestock supply chains are an important contributor to climate change. Yet, despite existing and attainable potential to significantly reduce these greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, political will and the right policies are still required.Document

The climate and development challenge for Latin America and the Caribbean: options for climate-resilient, low-carbon developmentBanco Interamericano de Desarrollo / Inter-American Development Bank (IADB), 2013This comprehensive report by the Inter-American Development Bank seeks to assess the physical and economic impacts of climate change in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), as well as adaptation options available. Additionally, the report examines how, and at what cost, the region can reduce its carbon footprint to a level consistent with global stabilisation goals.DocumentWorld Wildlife Fund, India, 2013WWF-India is working with farmers in Warangal district of India to promote better management practices (BMPs) in cotton so as to reduce the environmental impact associated with the overuse of inputs and resources. This paper examines a pilot project to estimate the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of cotton production systems, comparing traditionally grown cotton with BMP cotton.
