Abstract

Published as part of the HSBC Climate Partnership WWF-India’s living Ganga Programme, this report presents the results of a vulnerability assessment of people, livelihoods, and ecosystems performed along a critical stretch of the Ganga Basin from Gangotri to Kanpur. The Livelihoods Vulnerability Index Methodology (LVI-IPCC) was used in this study for the ultimate purpose of identifying releveant adaptation response strategies for this area.

Project Summary/Overview

Following through on recommendations from a 2008 climate change summit, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) worked with partners to conduct limited vulnerability assessments and adaptation planning for a subset of species. Those efforts provided the foundational science-based information for the revised State Wildlife Action Plan (2010).

Project Summary/Overview

Climate Change Adaptation in Protected Areas in Mexico for the Conservation of Biodiversity, Ecosystems, and Ecosystem Services is a collaborative program of The Nature Conservancy intended to protect biodiversity and ecosystems from climate change impacts. The program looks at adaptation, resilience, and connectivity in protected areas. A pilot program on climate adaptation in Southeast Mexico’s protected areas began in July 2010.

Abstract

Agriculture in developing countries must undergo a significant transformation in order to meet the related challenges of achieving food security and responding to climate change. Projections based on population growth and food consumption patterns indicate that agricultural production will need to increase by at least 70 percent to meet demands by 2050. Most estimates also indicate that climate change is likely to reduce agricultural productivity, production stability and incomes in some areas that already have high levels of food insecurity.
