Many approaches and tools have been developed and used to measure climate resilience in cities. The authors of this study explore if and how such tools can be or have been used to support decision-making for building urban climate resilience.
Assessing the quality of state-of-the-art regional climate information: the case of the UK Climate Projections 2018
In this paper, we assess the quality of state-of-the-art regional climate information intended to support climate adaptation decision-making. We use the UK Climate Projections 2018 as an example of such information. Their probabilistic, global, and regional land projections exemplify some of the key methodologies that are at the forefront of constructing regional climate information for […]
The distributional impact of the low-carbon transition is an increasingly important topic both for academics and policymakers. Quantifying where the…
What role for multi-stakeholder partnerships in adaptation to climate change? Experiences from private sector adaptation in Kenya
Amidst increasing interest in multi-stakeholder partnerships (MSPs) in climate discourse, this paper identifies four rationales for why MSPs may be…
The authors of this paper examined past and future climate variability with the aim of understanding the main source of climate risk to development plans across the water, energy, and food sectors in southern East Africa, a relatively neglected region in terms of climate science and targeted for extensive infrastructure development.
Abstract There are now a plethora of data, models, and approaches available to produce regional and local climate information intended to inform adaptation to a changing climate. There is, however, no framework to assess the quality of these data, models, and approaches that takes into account the issues that arise when this information is produced. […]
Current and future flood risk of new build homes across different socio-economic neighbourhoods in England and Wales
Despite improvements in the management of flood risk and the introduction of new regulations, losses from flooding remain high. An…
The authors of this paper introduce a novel method to compare the costs of water conservation measures with the added value that reallocation of water savings might generate if used for expansion of irrigation.
