Given that climate change is and will continue to impact regions in different ways, migration from the areas most exposed to climate change needs to be considered. Fostering a better understanding of climate-related migration will also be a fundamental step in securing the future stability of our planet and action on poverty reduction.
This article addresses one of the main threats for the marine ecosystem: Ocean Acidification. Caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions, it affects the whole marine ecosystem. To cope with it and lower its negative socio-economic effects, it is necessary to adopt a comprehensive adaptation strategy to enforce resilience and reduce local stressors.
This article by FEEM researchers Francesco Bosello and Ramiro Parrado addresses one specific criticism that can be raised against economic climate change impact assessments conducted with Computable General Equilibrium models: that of overly optimistic assumptions about markets’ ability to react to climate change induced shocks, i.e. market-driven adaptation.
Estimates of future damages from climate change in coastal areas are of growing interest for climate change research and policy-making. The article describes a newly-developed methodology applied to estimate total insured coastal damages with climate change for the period 2025-2085 in New York State, USA.
The article describes a method for projecting coastal zone flood damage with climate change. The method links current flood damage estimates from climate impacts with changes in parameters from climate scenarios to produce estimates of future damages from climate change.
Vulnerability to climate change is an increasingly relevant issue for urban policy makers. Comparing the experiences of several cities, this article examines the levels of administrative adaptation planning, tools and information used in making policy choices, adaptation measures, and the roles of governance and finance in urban adaptation to climate change.
