Climate change adaptation strategies in the Mekong and Orange-Senqu basins: what determines the state-of-play?Science Direct, 2010This paper explores the varying degrees of progress towards climate change adaptation action along trans-boundary river basins with the help of regime effectiveness theory.Document
Climate change-related vulnerabilities and local environment public health tracking through GEMSS: a web-based visualisation toolScience Direct, 2011This paper presents a novel application of Geospatial Emergency Management Support System (GEMSS). This is a geospatial tool that integrates multiple data sources, allowing for the streamlined visualisation of environmental risk, socio-economic and demographic vulnerability, baseline mortality, and policy intervention measures.Document
Promoting health and well-being by managing for social–ecological resilience: the potential of integrating ecohealth and water resources management approachesEcology and Society, 2011This paper combines insights from the field of eco-health (which advocates human health and well-being as an important outcome of effective ecosystem management) with those from integrated watershed management (which promotes watersheds as appropriate units for managing ecosystems).Document
Policy misfits, climate change and cross-scale vulnerability in coastal Africa: how development projects undermine resilienceScience Direct, 2010Coastal social ecological systems in eastern Africa are subject to a range of environmental, social and economic changes, and the impacts of climate change are likely to further exacerbate their vulnerabilities. This paper presents an analysis based on local perceptions of recent changes at four sites in coastal Tanzania and Mozambique.DocumentUnited Nations [UN] Environment Programme, 2011This paper focuses on environmental pressures caused by climate change and their impact on marine ecosystem resilience. The authors also discuss the human impacts which increase the vulnerability and decrease the resilience of marine ecosystems.DocumentScience Direct, 2010This paper defines and explains five key dimensions of maladaptation which it refers to as “the problem of increasing risks from adaptation activities”.OrganisationThe CLICO project mobilizes 14 research teams and brings together for the first time some of the world's leading researchers in water resource, vulnerability, and peace and security studies.DocumentClico, 2010Both politicians and scientists have called climate change a conflict trigger or multiplier.DocumentClico, 2011The second policy brief from the EU funded Climate Change, Hydro‐conflicts and Human Security (CLICO) project presents insights on emerging policies at the interface of climate change, water and human security at national and international level. Ten case studies were conducted in variouscountries in the he Mediterranean, the Middle East and the Saheland at UN and EU level.DocumentUnited Nations Development Programme, 2009It is evident that impacts of climate change will seriously affect the availability of water resources and that responses so far at best have been slow in most developing countries. The Report looks at water adaptation aspects in ongoing processes of formulating and implementing National Adaptation Programmes of Action – NAPAs.
