This working paper analyzes the vulnerability and adaptive options of coastal areas in Europe and Central Asia (ECA), with a particular focus on rising sea levels and exposure and sensitivity on coastlines of the Baltic, Caspian, Mediterranean and Arctic seas.

Montreal - Mice in Canada are mutating and migrating farther north in response to climate change, according to McGill University research released on Monday.

At the High-Level closing of the Global Climate Action events, the first Yearbook of Climate Action was presented to UN Secretary-General António Guterres by Inia Seruiratu, Climate Champion and Fijian Minister for Agriculture, Rural and Maritime Development and National Disaster Management, and Salaheddine Mezouar, Minister for Foreign Affairs

Climate change may both exacerbate the vulnerabilities and open up new opportunities for farming in the Northeastern USA. Among the opportunities are double-cropping and new crop options that may come with warmer temperatures and a longer frost-free period. However, prolonged periods of spring rains in recent years have delayed planting and offset the potentially beneficial longer frost-free period.

This report highlights the experiences of nations in the Global South in climate adaptation. It emphasizes the need to bolster the effectiveness of climate adaptation action in order to ensure that the world’s most vulnerable people are well-equipped to respond to the impacts of climate change.

This report explores key opportunities and challenges associated with assessing progress on climate adaptation at the global level, addressing one of the main questions on ways to move forward, arising from the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Climate change is already forcing people from their land and homes, and putting many more at risk of displacement in the future.

Mountains provide vital resources to a significant proportion of the global population, particularly as the ‘water towers’ of the world, and as a result of their high biological diversity at genetic, species and ecosystem levels.

Building on FAO’s global study of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in the agriculture sectors, the Climate and Environment Division (CBC) is developing a series of regional-level analyses of the NDCs to identify the current commitments, gaps and opportunities for enhancing regional mitigation and adaptation ambitions in the agricul

Tracking adaptation progress at country level is increasingly recognized as an important element of climate change adaptation. The Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, stresses the need to monitor and learn from adaptation actions, and recommends periodical stocktaking of the overall progress towards climate change adaptation.
