- DocumentCenter for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, 2000This report discusses user responses to seasonal climate forecasts in southern Africa, with an emphasis on small-scale farmers in Namibia and Tanzania. The study examines if and how farmers received, used, and perceived the forecasts in the 1997/98 agricultural season.DocumentCenter for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, 2003New research results show that emissions of greenhouse gases from OECD countries make up 40% of the anthropogenic temperature increase up to the present. This short paper looks at different measurment methods and their reliability.Document
Developing strategies for climate change: the UNEP country studies on climate change impacts and adaptations assessmentCenter for International Climate and Environmental Research, Oslo, 2002This report summarises four country studies, carried out in Antigua and Barbuda, Cameroon, Estonia, and Pakistan.DocumentInternational Food Policy Research Institute, 2003This speech by IFPRI Director General Joachim von Braun was prepared for the Annual General Meeting of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (Nairobi, October 29, 2003).Documentid21 Development Research Reporting Service, 2002The least developed countries (LDCs) may be contributing the least to emission of greenhouse gases but they are the most vulnerable to climate change. Can national development policies include adaptation to the anticipated unfavourable impacts of climate change? What lessons can be learnt from LDCs that have begun planning their long- term adaptive capacity?Document
Reaching sustainable food security for all by 2020: Getting the priorities and responsibilities rightInternational Food Policy Research Institute, 2003As part of its 2020 Vision for Food, Agriculture, and the Environment Initiative, the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) has articulated a vision of what the world should look like in 2020: It describes a world free from poverty, hunger, malnutrition, and unsustainable natural resource management.This document presents the outcomes of a conference which considered the drivingDocumentEnergy Research Centre, University of Cape Town (UCT), 2002Under the current climate negotiations, developing countries do not have binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, however this paper argues that to stabilise atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations, all countries will eventually need to be included in the effort to limit climate change. So what might this mean for developing countries?DocumentWWF-World Wide Fund For Nature, 2002This paper considers the potential impacts of climate change on protected areas (PAs) and actions that can be taken to mitigate them. Recent research suggests that the types of environmental changes predicted in climatic models are now taking place.Document
Buying time: a user’s manual for building resistance and resilience to climate change in natural systemsWWF-World Wide Fund For Nature, 2003This manual is intended for natural resource managers who wish to plan for the potential and current impacts of climate change. It looks at impacts and mitigation measures (other than reducing emissions) by biome. The manual outlines practical ideas of how to begin increasing the resiliency of ecosystems and plan our protected areas in response to the threat of climate change.Document
Carbon accounting in forests: proceedings of an international workshop on 'facilitating international carbon accounting in forests' 2003CSIRO Forestry and Forest Products, 2003The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief introduction to greenhouse and climate change, international frameworks, carbon sequestration and carbon trading. It focusses in particular on policy relating to Australia.The paper demonstrates that increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide have been identified as a major cause of global warming.
