South Asia is highly vulnerable to climate change. Given that many of the poor live in areas prone to climactic shifts and in occupations that are highly climate-sensitive, such as agriculture and fisheries, future climate change could have significant implications for living standards.

The thermal suitability of riverine habitats for cold water adapted species may be reduced under climate change. Riparian tree planting is a practical climate change mitigation measure, but it is often unclear where to focus effort for maximum benefit. Recent developments in data collection, monitoring and statistical methods have facilitated the development of increasingly sophisticated river temperature models capable of predicting spatial variability at large scales appropriate to management.

In the face of a determined European Union, working in parallel with an unexpectedly aggressive United States, developing countries stood to lose their rights under the Paris Agreement

LOS ANGELES: NASA has developed a new forecasting tool that can predict which cities will be affected as different portions of ice sheets melt due to global warming

BONN: With countries joining hands to end coal-use as part of decarbonising their economies in due course, India on Thursday made it clear that the steps were being taken in the country to "de-coup

BONN, Germany: Switching over to renewable (solar, wind, biomass and hydro) energy is important to meet the Paris Agreement goal.

A 'declaration' by the newly-launched alliance said that coal phase-out needed to be carried out "no later than by 2030" in the OECD and EU countries, and "no later than by 2050" in the rest of the

The Paris Agreement has called for reducing carbon emissions worldwide. But to sufficiently limit the rise in global temperatures, energy use would have to be completely decarbonised in less than 50 years, even amid the expected tripling of the world’s economy by 2060.

The number of undernourished people in sub-Saharan Africa has increased mainly due to the impact of conflict and climate change with the situation pointing to the urgent need to build affected communities' resilience and to find peaceful solutions that strengthen food security, FAO said.

Bonn - As climate change drives up temperatures, Earth comes ever closer to dangerous 'tipping points' that could accelerate global warming beyond our capacity to reign it in, scientists warned at
