Abstract

The Port of Long Beach (Port) developed a Climate Adaptation and Coastal Resiliency Plan (CRP) to manage the direct and indirect risks associated with climate change and coastal hazards. The CRP provides a framework for the Port to incorporate adaptive measures related to projected climate change into its policymaking and planning processes, construction practices, infrastructure design, and environmental documents.

Tool Overview: 

Events such as climate change, extreme weather, floods, wildfires, and significant economic changes affect some populations more than others. Populations at Risk is a free tool to easily create reports about populations more likely to experience adverse social, health, or economic outcomes in selected areas of the United States. Variables used include indicators such as race, ethnicity, housing, poverty, and education, among others. Produced in Excel or PDF format, reports may be created at the community, county, or state scale and may compare several geographies.

Abstract

ADVANCE is a partnership between World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Columbia University Center for Climate Systems Research (CCSR) at The Earth Institute. Launched in 2015, ADVANCE facilitates planning and decision-making by providing new ways of generating and integrating climate risk information into conservation, development, and disaster management policy and practice.

Organization Overview: 

paleBLUEdot’s mission is to hasten the transition to a low carbon economy and to elevate the public discourse.  We work towards that mission as a provider of thoughtful and comprehensive Climate Change, carbon reduction, and sustainability assessments, action planning, and consulting to businesses and communities; carbon offset consulting and sourcing for businesses and individuals; and a trusted source of climate change and sustainability education and communication programs and content.

 

Adaptation work: 

In support of our mission and our over-arching climate action work, paleBLUEdot provides climate risk assessment and climate adaptation planning for businesses and communities.

Abstract

To understand what works and what does not in building climate and disaster resilience, the BRACED Knowledge Manager is developing and testing a variety of resilience measurement and monitoring approaches. The BRACED Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework is designed to enable data collection and evidence generation to track, measure and understand the processes of change that lead to climate and disaster resilience.

Abstract

BRACED projects cover a wide range of issues, from securing, servicing and promoting trans-border livestock mobility across the Sahel, to sharing skills and technology to improve the uptake of climate information in Ethiopia, to supporting smallholder farmers in Nepal to take advantage of economic opportunities and investments in climate-smart technologies. Furthermore, each BRACED project uses different intervention strategies and are being implemented in different climatic and operating contexts.

Abstract

This report highlights lessons from the 2015–16 drought in Ethiopia, including how and why different communities were impacted, effective approaches to resilience building and challenges faced.

Abstract

In this BRACED Knowledge Manager working paper we present a synthesis of findings from Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda on the role of social protection programmes in contributing to people’s capacity to absorb, anticipate and adapt to climate-related shocks and stresses.

Abstract

Resilience programmes often aim to provide services that help build assets and minimise the impact of shocks and stresses on people’s lives and livelihoods. But little is known about the way local risk governance systems and institutional arrangements mediate people’s access to these services and therefore lead to improved resilience.

Abstract

This toolkit, developed through the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme, is designed to develop and deliver health, education, water and sanitation hardware interventions that are more resilient to climate extremes and disasters. It provides a generic framework to help users:
