Platform on sustainable finance: Consultation response: Taxonomy draft Delegated Act setting out technical screening criteria for climate change mitigation and adaptation

This paper sets out feedback from the Platform to the European Commission regarding the first draft Delegated Act supplementing the EU Taxonomy Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2020/852). In November 2020, the Commission released the draft Delegated Act which sets out technical screening criteria for determining when economic activities can contribute substantially to climate change mitigation and adaptation, and when they can be considered to cause significant harm to other environmental objectives within the context of the EU Taxonomy

Global Landscape of Climate Finance 2019

The 2019 edition of Climate Policy Initiative’s Global Landscape of Climate Finance (the Landscape) provides a comprehensive overview of global climate-related primary investment. This year’s report includes the first major wave of investments following ratification of the Paris Agreement, in 2017 and 2018

Boosting Disaster Prevention through Innovative Risk Governance

In 2014 the OECD carried out work to take stock of OECD countries' achievements in building resilience to major natural and man-made disasters. The report suggested that albeit significant achievements were made through effective risk prevention and mitigation management, past disasters have revealed persistent vulnerabilities and gaps in risk prevention management across OECD

Adapt now: a global call for leadership on climate resilience

This report focuses on making the case for climate adaptation, providing specific insights and recommendations in key sectors: food security, the natural environment, water, cities and urban areas, infrastructure, disaster risk management, and finance. It is designed to inspire action among decision-makers, including heads of state and government officials, mayors, business executives, investors, and community leaders

The demand for financing climate projects in cities

The report, based on the data drawn from 106 applications for support received by the C40 Cities Finance Facility in 2018, from 1,037 projects submitted to Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) in 2017 and from the 2017 CDP Cities Questionnaire, answers the following questions: What are the common characteristics of climate-related projects for which cities seek project preparation and financing support? What are the sectors and geographical spread of these projects? What is the scale of capital investment required for these projects? What are the climate benefits and co-benefits of these projects? What kind of support are cities asking for to proceed to implementation? What challenges to project implementation do cities currently face? First, the report outlines the methodology employed to assess the projects in both databases. Second, the projects’ characteristics are outlined as answers to the aforementioned questions

The State of the World’s Biodiversity for Food and Agriculture

Biodiversity for food and agriculture is indispensable to food security and sustainable development. It supplies many vital ecosystem services, such as creating and maintaining healthy soils, pollinating plants, controlling pests and providing habitat for wildlife, including for fish and other species that are vital to food production and agricultural livelihoods

Aquaporin-Inside™ Membranes for Brackish water Reverse Osmosis Application

Water is a precondition for human, animal and plant life – but climate change poses a threat to the world’s water supply, with many regions at risk of severe drought. An EU-funded project has developed a membrane inspired by nature’s own technology to sustainably secure safe and clean water for all

Climatic Suitability for the Tiger Mosquito - Season Length, 1971-2099

Context The tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) transmits vector-borne diseases, such as dengue and chikungunya. Environmental factors such as temperature and rainfall impact the survival chance and seasonal activity of the tiger mosquito which is a serious threat for human health in Europe

Fire Weather Index - Monthly Mean, 1979-2019

Context The Canadian Fire Weather Index System (FWI) is used to assess fire danger in a harmonized way across Europe. The FWI uses information about fuel moisture and weather conditions to determine fire behaviour

Thermal Comfort Indices - Mean Radiant Temperature, 1979-2019

Context The mean radiant temperature (MRT) is a human biometeorology parameter that is used to assess the linkages between the outdoor environment and human well‐being. Thermal comfort indices describe how the human body experiences atmospheric conditions, specifically air temperature, humidity, wind and radiation

Health Heatwave (High Temperature and Humidity), 1971-2099

Context A health-related heatwave is a prolonged period of extremely high temperature and humidity for a particular region during which daily minima and maxima both exceed thresholds. Heatwaves with high humidity are problematic for human health and well-being

Thermal Comfort Indices - Universal Thermal Climate Index, 1979-2019

Context The universal thermal climate index (UTCI) is a human biometeorology parameter that is used to assess the linkages between outdoor environment and human well‐being. Thermal comfort indices describe how the human body experiences atmospheric conditions, specifically air temperature, humidity, wind and radiation

OPEn-air laboRAtories for Nature baseD solUtions to Manage environmental risks

The objective of OPERANDUM is to reduce hydro-meteorological risks in European territories through co-designed, co-developed, deployed, tested and demonstrated innovative green and blue/grey/hybrid NBS, and push business exploitation. It aims for provision of science-evidence for the usability of NBS, and best practices for their design based on participatory processes

Biodiversity Integrated Assessment and Computation Tool (B-INTACT)

Biodiversity loss is accelerating at an unprecedented rate across the planet putting a great number of species on the brink of extinction. A decline in the plants, animals and micro-organisms threatens food security, sustainable development and the supply of vital ecosystem services

Daily Maximum Temperature - Monthly Mean, 2011-2099

Context The daily maximum temperature index provides information on long-term climate variability and change. Temperature plays a fundamental role in agricultural productivity, biodiversity and public health

Precipitation Sum, 2011-2099

Context The precipitation sum provides information on possible water shortage or excess. Definition The precipitation sum index is expressed as a percentage change in total precpitation relative to a reference period
