Municipalities across Europe increasingly acknowledge the need to adapt to climate change and have begun to adopt various measures. Meeting the costs of adaptation measures for climate change is, however, a major challenge. Municipalities have found innovative ways to overcome that challenge and have started implementing measures.

In the agricultural sector there is an especially urgent need to develop and disseminate adaptation prioritization tools given the prominence of the sector in INDCs to the Paris Climate Agreement.

Farmers at Gcabayi and Amazon A and B villages, under Chief Bekezela Sibasa, are among those who have ventured into drought mitigation programmes implemented through Environment Africa, Dabani Trus

The revelation was made by Climate Impact Research Capacity and Leadership Enhancement (CIRCLE) Programme Manager, Benjamin Gyampoh recently while in Dar es Salaam, adding that most parts of Africa

This new report explores the potential of seven innovative climate finance options to meet the financing needs of the Adaptation Fund. It concludes that if implemented in a collective manner, these can provide a steady and predictable stream of finance for the Fund.

One consequence of rising spring temperatures is that the optimum timing of key life-history events may advance. Where this is the case, a population's fate may depend on the degree to which it is able to track a change in the optimum timing either via plasticity or via adaptation. Estimating the effect that temperature change will have on optimum timing using standard approaches is logistically challenging, with the result that very few estimates of this important parameter exist.

Thirty-seven researchers from nine African countries including Ghana are to benefit from a programme to generate knowledge to assist the continent to effectively tackle climate change.

Malawi is this week hosting representatives from twelve countries from across the world in the capital Lilongwe this for an international forum that will focus on best practices related to measurin

The largest regional precipitation events are likely to become exponentially more frequent due to global warming and the increases in atmospheric moisture content that it will bring, according to n

Global climate change projections for Nepal and the Himalayas suggest significant changes in temperature and precipitation, including increased monsoon (summer) precipitation and more variable and highly unpredictable actual rainfall patterns.
