  • impacts of climate change
  • By 2050, according to the World Bank's recently launched "Groundswell: Preparing for Internal Climate Migration" report, more than 143 million people in three regions , Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and South Asia, could be forced to move within their own countries to escape the slow-onset impacts of climate change, such as water stress and crop failure.

  • IPCC
  • Land is a Critical Resource, IPCC report says - GENEVA, Aug 8 - Land is already under growing human pressure and climate change is adding to these pressures. (ipcc.ch)
  • Arrangements for broadcasters for interviews on IPCC Special Report Climate Change and Land - GENEVA, July 30 - Following the press conference at 10.00 a.m. (ipcc.ch)
  • Through its assessments, the IPCC determines the state of knowledge on climate change. (ipcc.ch)
  • The IPCC, in its 2007 Fourth Assessment Report, estimated that in order to stabilize CO2 emissions in the atmosphere at 450 parts per million (ppm) in 2050 (a goal that many climate change experts have advocated), greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions need to be reduced by 85% compared to levels observed in our own GHG emissions reduction progress against that benchmark.

  • greenhouse gases
  • Many lines of evidence demonstrate that human activities, especially emissions of greenhouse gases, are primarily responsible for the observed climate changes in the industrial era, especially over the last six decades. (csmonitor.com)
  • While the science has continued to evolve, the core concerning the influence of anthropogenic greenhouse gases on the climate has long been established. (ibm.com)
  • The current measurable change in temperature is due to the increase in greenhouse gases, like CO2, CH4, NO2, and others. (carleton.edu)
  • NASA
  • Although much of my own work at IBM has focused on improving weather forecasts for business applications, I worked on climate problems at NASA in the 1980s. (ibm.com)
  • Eco-Schools USA Climate Change Connections (CCC) is a 9th-12th grade curriculum , designed to build upon and utilize the many NASA mission resources, programs, and associated interfaces to enhance authentic learning experiences for both educators and students. (nwf.org)
  • droughts
  • If on the shorter term, climate change cannot be considered itself as a new risk but rather as an additional element fostering the emergence of already existing risks (such as floods, droughts or extreme temperatures), the longer term view shows that climate change can also lead to the emergence of new hazards in regions where their potential risk was almost negligible. (coe.int)
  • resilient
  • Making the right choices in favor of infrastructure that is climate resilient and locks in a low carbon development pathway is critical and urgent. (worldbank.org)
  • In terms of water management, climate change not only leads to the need of strengthening flood protection, but also to making urban, agricultural and environmental systems more drought and heat resilient. (tudelft.nl)
  • Evidence
  • Evidence for a changing climate abounds, from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans," a draft of the report published by The New York Times reads. (csmonitor.com)
  • sectors
  • By its nature, climate change is a global problem that defies simple "silver bullet" solutions or contributions by a narrow group of countries or a few industry sectors. (intel.com)
  • decades
  • But how have wildfire occurrences changed over decades? (nasa.gov)
  • Unlike weather, many of the decisions associated with climate are of a strategic not tactical nature, such as determining how and what changes in infrastructure may be required that take years to build and have a lifetime of decades. (ibm.com)
  • interdisciplinary
  • In particular, it will aim to bring together participants and identify resources that might lead to the formation of an interdisciplinary research network in climate change and global governance. (warwick.ac.uk)
  • seeks
  • IUCN's work in this region seeks to ensure that climate change related policies, plans and strategies emphasize the role of ecosystems (forests, drylands, marine, coastal and wetlands) in supporting and strengthening adaptive capacities at multiple levels, including local livelihoods. (iucn.org)
  • It seeks to develop an integrated systems-thinking approach to understanding and acting upon the issue of climate change. (nwf.org)
