Abstract

National adaptation planning is a critical component of climate resilient development. While many adaptation actions will be taken at a local level, it is at the national level that priorities for development and adaptation are set, and coordination is conducted with donors. National governments also make many important decisions regarding taxes, expenditures, regulations, land-use, and other aspects of national policy making that can profoundly affect a nation’s development path.

Abstract

The vast majority of work on gender and climate change adaptation treats gender as a simple either/or binary with men on one side and women on the other. This report, however, shows that such approaching gender analysis through such a binary approach alone is out of step with the current state of knowledge on gender and adaptation.

Abstract

This report from the Australian nonprofit Enliven outlines the various impacts of climate change on people with disabilities and their carers (i.e. family or personal attendants), and actions that can be taken to minimize or withstand those impacts. It brings together evidence, concerns, concepts, and arguments from a wide array of climate change, disability, and disaster management fields. It also explores theories of justice in general and then shapes them into its policy recommendations.

Abstract

There is increasing recognition of the significance of traditional knowledges (TKs) in relation to climate change. And yet there are potential risks to indigenous peoples in sharing TKs in federal and other non-indigenous climate change initiatives. These guidelines are intended to examine the significance of TKs in relation to climate change and the potential risks to indigenous peoples in the U.S. for sharing TKs in federal and other non-indigenous climate change initiatives.
