Adaptation Strategies / Adaptation-Mitigation Nexus(560)
Mainstreaming adaptation measures into development plan is an important step in policy making in response to climate change. Many policy makers are looking at no-regret options or ones that can generate multiple benefits.
Coastal Zone Management(134)
Coastal zone management helps coastal communities prepare for and adapt to impacts from climate change such as sea level rise and runoff.
Communication and Awareness(907)
Information and knowledge can be powerful vehicle in connecting science and policy, raising awareness, and mainstreaming adaptation through effective communication means.
Community Based Adaptation(167)
Community based adaptation empowers communities by sharing knowledge and lessons on effective ways to adapt to climate change impacts and implementing successful and sustainable adaptation projects.
Disaster Risk Reduction(202)
Disaster Risk Reduction is a systematic approach to identifying, assessing, developing and applying of policies, strategies and practices to minimise vulnerabilities and disaster risks throughout society.
Ecosystems Based Adaptation(123)
The approach uses biodiversity and ecosystem services as part of an overall adaptation strategy to help people and communities reduce and adapt to the adverse impacts of climate change at local, national, regional and global levels.
The financing needs for climate change adaptation in developing countries for 2010-2050 are estimated at $100B per year, equivalent to current official development assistance levels across all sectors.Improved capacity to prepare sophisticated proposals to the donour community can increase the chance of accessing finance options.
Forecast and Assessment(66)
Climate change forecast and impact/vulnerability assessments are considered as the very first step of developing adaptation policies and measures.
Gender and Social Impacts(204)
Though Climate Change affects everyone, there are gender and sociopolitical and economic differences in impacts and adaptive capacities. For example, women from poor communities are highly dependent on local natural resource and often disproportionately vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.
Loss and Damage(35)
Loss and damage is an emerging field that is being addressed at the international level in the broad context of climate change.
The Himalayan region observesan alarming rate of climate change and addresses to the impacts to protect their unique ecosystems and livelihood.
Natural Resources and Agriculture(391)
Climate change has significant impacts on natural resources and the agriculturesector which relies onthese resources is considered as one of the most susceptible sectors.
The corporate/private sector takes actions in response to climate change - natural resource constraints, manufacturing or logistical interruptions and other possible impacts.
