David Ellison et al. Forest-driven water and energy cycles are poorly integrated into regional, national, continental and global decision-making on climate change adaptation, mitigation, land use and water management. This constrains humanity’s ability to protect our planet’s climate and life-sustaining functions. The substantial body of research we review reveals that forest, water and energy interactions provide the foundations for carbon storage, for cooling terrestrial surfaces and for distributing water resources. Forests and trees must be recognized as prime regulators within…
2017 32 pp. by Nguyen Thi Huyen, Le Hoang Tu, Nguyen Duy Liem, Vo Ngoc Quyn Tram, Duong Ngoc Minh, Nguyen Kim Loi  ISSN:19086164 (Soft cover)   Click here to download.  The Srepok River basin, which flows along four provinces in Vietnam and parts of Cambodia, is presently facing critical issues such as floods and droughts, pollution of waterways, deforestation of catchments, erosion and resultant sedimentation of reservoirs, overexploitation of groundwater, water-use conflicts, and transborder issues. This study aims to investigate…
"Adapting and living below 2oC: bridging gaps in policies and practices” call for harnessing more local involvement in integrated adaptation planning, providing access to relevant sources of financing and technologies, provisioning coherent capacity building, involving private sector, and tapping knowledge networks including the Asia Pacific Adaptation Network (APAN) for replicable adaptation measures and collective learning to support effective and inclusive adaptation planning and implementation. Over 900 participants including policymakers, scientists, donors, youth, and representatives from over 50 countries discussed opportunities…
Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time. Over 30 UNESCO programmes in the sciences, education, culture and communication contribute to creating knowledge, educating and communicating about climate change, and to understanding the ethical implications for present and future generations.
Rural communities throughout the Asia-Pacific are generally more exposed to climate-driven changes to their livelihoods than those in larger/urban communities. A team led by Dr. Chris Jacobson, Sustainability Research Centre, University of the Sunshine Coast, Australia, developed and piloted a community resilience tool to be used to support climate change adaptation within existing development planning pathways. The framework included 39 key questions based around the outcomes related to livelihoods and environment, infrastructure, community, and climate change and disaster management. The…
Author: Imelda Visaya-Abaño Rex L. Navarro Rosa T. Perez Klima 101: A Climate Change Guidebook for Philippine Journalists aims to help journalists and editors, including journalism teachers and trainers, to navigate and understand scientific issues better. It hopes to provide a clear idea of the nature of climate change, what types of data and information journalists need to write or produce a story (particularly on the impact of climate change on agriculture and food security), how to report climate issues effectively,…
The Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) is proud to present this pioneering work, featuring selected case stories on climate change adaptation initiatives that are being implemented in Southeast Asia. This book Learning and Coping with Change: Case Stories of Climate Change Adaptation in Southeast Asia is the outcome of the First Regional Knowledge Sharing Writeshop on Climate Change Adaptation (CCA) in Inclusive and Sustainable Agricultural and Rural Development (ISARD) held on 15–17 April…
2016 45 pp. by Aisa O. Manlosa, Harold Glenn A. Valera  ISSN:19086164 (Soft cover)   Click here to download.    This study sought to determine microscale damage estimates of the largest flood event in the history of the municipality of Jabonga in the province of Agusan del Norte. Jabonga is a lakeside municipality adjacent to Lake Mainit, the fourth largest lake in the Philippines. The study sought to on  determine flood-prone areas in the municipality, characterize the flood event that occurred…
Green infrastructure can play a significant role in offsetting losses from climate-related disasters and contribute to building resilience through rehabilitation and expansion of natural ecosystems within built areas. Urban populations are projected to increase from 54% to 66% of the global population by 2050, with close to 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. Cities and towns—a growing source of greenhouse gas emissions—will need to address challenges posed by climate change. A nature-based approach in identifying climate change…
