The evolving architecture of global climate change adaptation finance is shifting towards fund mechanisms with competitive application and allocation principles. At the same time, prioritization of the most vulnerable countries is a key goal within this emerging architecture. The paper analyses whether the Green Climate Fund (GCF), by far the large...
Assessing global progress on human adaptation to climate change is an urgent priority. Although the literature on adaptation to climate change is rapidly expanding, little is known about the actual extent of implementation. We systematically screened >48,000 articles using machine learning methods and a global network of 126 researchers. Our synthe...
Indices assessing country-level climate and disaster risk at the global scale have experienced a steep rise in popularity both in science and international climate policy. A number of widely cited products have been developed and published over the recent years, argued to contribute critical knowledge for prioritizing action and funding. However, i...
Adaptation planning essentially is about the reduction of future climate risk. A sound understanding of potential future risk trends is therefore critical to examine adaptation needs and chart adaptation options. Future risk is driven and defined not only by future changes in climatic hazards but by future trends in exposure and vulnerability, driv...
We present the first systematic, global stocktake of the academic literature on human adaptation. We screen 48,316 documents and identify 1,682 articles that present empirical research documenting human efforts to reduce risk from climate change and associated hazards. Coding and synthesizing this literature highlights that the overall extent of ad...
The most vulnerable countries often face a double burden in relation to climate change—they are at high risk to the impacts and are least equipped to cope and adapt to them. Global climate policy since the Convention in 1992, until most recently with the global goal on adaptation in the Paris Agreement, has manifested the importance of prioritizing...
The paper is written at a time where young people are taking matters into their own hands and climate adaptation has become a necessity. The paper uncovers that institutional barriers and capacity challenges are the main drawbacks for effective youth engagement in climate adaptation across the globe. Through a consultative process with youth organi...
Urban climate risk, and flood risk in particular, is a growing problem as it is driven by the confluence of two mega-trends of global change: urbanization and climate change. These trends will greatly challenge the sustainability of urban human-environment interaction with regards to, for example, settlement patterns, infrastructure design and institutional arrangements for risk management. The adaptation of cities and facilitation of viable urbanization pathways is one of the greatest societal challenges for sustainable development at large. Against this background, TrAnSCEnd is structured around three main research objectives: - Vulnerability scenarios and risk pathways - Adaptation demands and evaluation of different adaptation options - Transformation decisions and risk governance It aims to foster knowledge-based solutions to support flood-risk management in Mubai and Jakarta. https://www.transcend-project.org/
