For its part, India has voluntarily committed to an ambitious reduction in emissions intensity, notwithstanding its immense energy needs to meet its Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This paper examines the new technologies urgently needed to deliver additional, permanent and quantifiable impacts to slash emissions. Despite needing to halve emissions by 2030 to stand a chance of limiting warming to 1.5C, they continue to rise.
This book explores the intersection of gender and climate change, suggests ways in which innovative technologies can accelerate climate relief actions, and offers strategies for integrating climate change initiatives into national policies and planning.
Highlighting how plastic impacts climate change, this brief considers the anticipated Global Plastics Treaty (GPT) and shows how ADB can help Asia and the Pacific implement circular economy solutions to help meet low-carbon goals.
According to this new analysis of the top 20 costliest extreme climate disasters over 2023 has revealed a “global postcode lottery stacked against the poor” where the relative economic impact of disasters varies considerably across countries.
This paper contributes to research on building climate risks resilience through early warning systems to identify hidden trends and emerging technologies that can support practitioners in the design of EWS. This review aims to contribute toward benefiting climate-sensitive sectors and helping managers with climate risk adaptation strategies.
This report examines the risk of climate-related impact on nature-based value chains in four arid and semi-arid counties in Kenya, where the intersection of climate-related hazard and vulnerability of pastoral communities and natural systems necessitates a shift from resilience to adaptation.
This report was written to catalyse change across the climate adaptation, disaster risk management, and humanitarian sectors to focus on the most vulnerable and excluded, who are least responsible, but most affected by the climate crisis.
