The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water


What (is) next for Ecosystem-based Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation?

This webinar will focus on the progress made in recent years on the topic of ecosystem-based approaches for disaster risk reduction (DRR) and climate change adaptation (CCA). It will discuss the advances on the policy front by considering the perspectives of the climate change, DRR, sustainable development and conservation communities. It will also discuss advances on the scientific front and give examples of implementation activities on the ground. In order to do this, examples and/or debates on the approaches from Japan (tsunami context), and from coastal erosion in Indonesia will be considered. Finally, ideas emanating from various fora on what the next steps are to accelerate the uptake of Eco-DRR/CCA approaches globally will be presented.

ICCG Webinar on "Changing water resources in Europe under climate change"

Climate change is affecting temperatures and precipitation across Europe. However, the observed and projected changes differ across seasons and regions. Further differentiation is necessary between mean water availability and extremes, such as droughts, heavy precipitation and floods. For example, some European regions may experience an increase in flooding even though annual precipitation is projected to decline. Read More...
