March 2020: Current urban drainage systems are at risk of system failure due to climate change induced rising frequencies of extreme weather. Experts recommend augmenting current capacities using hydraulic distribution systems (e.g. relief tunnels, storage units) and combining them with green infrastructures.
This week at Climate Exp0, Dr David Barnes, benthic marine Ecologist at British Antarctic Survey, has discussed the potential for mitigating climate change through nature-based solutions, including sharing collaborative research … The post BLOG: If we are serious about climate mitigation, we must do smarter ocean nature protection appeared first on British Antarctic Survey.
April 2021: Mechanisms such as individual and collective behaviour change could be effective measures to mitigate climate change if they sit alongside wider change efforts at system level such as technological improvements. To incentivise behaviour changes, policies such as targeted regulations, nudges, or financial incentives could be implemented to encourage the uptake of e-mobility, a…
April 2021: With each degree of global warming, the risk of flood-induced displacement increases by 50%. Assuming a two-degree warming scenario and population growth, the average risk could increase by up to 110% by the end of the century and displace more than 1 billion people. Risk reduction measures include improved spatial and urban planning…
