IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land

The IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land (SRCCL) explores how the way we use our land contributes to climate change and how climate change affects our land. It provides a detailed assessment of latest scientific knowledge about greenhouse gas fluxes in land-based ecosystems, land use and sustainable land management in relation to climate change adaptation and mitigation, desertification, land degradation and food security

Urban green-blue grid: Adaptation measures catalogue

Green blue urban grids reduce the effects of climate change and the energy and food shortages in urban areas. Furthermore, green-blue urban planning offers more room for the development of biodiversity and a healthier, more attractive living environment

WaterWindow

WaterWindow is an information portal where water and climate solutions, successfully proven in the Netherlands, can be found. All solutions, products and services are linked to a successful practice and provided with complementary information about advantages, time needed for implementation and development state, from the initial stage of the solution (basic principles observed and reported) to its most mature state (successfully proven in operational situations)

Energy Adaptation Map

The Energy Adaptation Map is a platform to pool and provide examples of adaptation to climate change in the energy sector.

UNFCCC Adaptation knowledge Portal

The Adaptation Knowledge Portal (AKP) is a product of the Nairobi Work Programme (NWP), the UNFCCC knowledge-for-action hub for climate adaptation and resilience. The AKP aims to provide access to information and knowledge on climate change adaptation, and on the work of related work streams under the Framework Convention on Climate Change

weADAPT

weADAPT is an online "open space" knowledge platform on climate adaptation issues (including the synergies between adaptation and mitigation) which allows practitioners, researchers and policy makers to access information and to share experiences for adaptation planning and decision-making. The collaborative platform on climate adaptation weADAPT includes: tools for knowledge integration; an Adaptation Layer (a Google Earth interface to show ‘who is doing what, where’ and to create 'adaptation stories'); a new climate adaptation Knowledge Base ; customized user and organisation profiles and adaptation decision support tools such as the prototype Adaptation Decision Explorer (ADx) , and presents: case studies of adaptation; literature on adaptation; guidance; training material on adaptation

Recognizing climate change in electricity network design and construction

The report presents how climate will change according to climate models concerning the planning and building of electric power networks in Finland from the present state to the period from 2016 to 2045. The essential impacts of changes in weather conditions on planning and building of electric network are defined regionally based on the climate change scenarios

Adapting to Climate Change: Local areas' action

Adapting to Climate Change: Local areas’ action provides examples of how local authorities and their partners in UK are adapting to climate change. The report draws on the lessons learned from 27 case studies from across the English regions, which describe how local areas are preparing to adapt, and are making progress

Regions 2020: The Climate Challenge for European Regions

This EU policy paper summarizes main findings regarding changes in climate conditions in Europe, outlines some of the impacts of climate change on socio-economic conditions, and identifies the regional distribution of these impacts. Preliminary conclusions are drawn in respect of the impact of climate change on regional growth potential, sustainability and quality of life

Review of climate change vulnerability, risk and adaptation assessment tools

This document aims to review climate change vulnerability, risk and adaptation assessment tools as a means of contextualizing and positioning the proposed Green and Blue Space Adaptation for Urban Areas and Eco-Towns (GRaBS) tool. It draws on evidence from international published literature, a web-review of tools and a number of other previous reviews

Adaptation to climate change (EU/ Espace)

Climate change urges us to reconsider the current practices of spatial planning. Adaptation to climate change requires a spatial approach on an international, national, regional and local level

Sweden facing climate change - threats and opportunities

The Commission on Climate and Vulnerability was appointed by the Swedish Government in June 2005 to assess regional and local impacts of global climate change and extreme whether events on the Swedish society including costs. This report summarises the results from the Commission

Uncertainty Communication, Issues and good practice

This report offers background information on uncertainty communication, and contains suggestions and guidance on how to communicate uncertainties in environmental assessment reports to several target audiences.

Planning for Climate Change: The Adaptation Challenge. A Nordic Perspective.

On September 11, 2007, a group of 70 practitioners, policymakers, researchers and other actors met in Helsinki to discuss one the most challenging and important issues on the current global agenda – climate change, and particularly adaptation to the effects of a changing climate. This conference, entitled, Planning for Climate Change: The Adaptation Challenge – A Nordic Perspective, organised by the Nordic Council of Ministers and Nordregio, Nordic Centre for Spatial Development, examined the challenges and opportunities inherent in climate change adaptation in the Nordic Countries and how planning and political processes can deal with these imperatives
