SaferRwanda, a non-profit organisation focusing on environmental protection through use of household solar systems and efficient cookstoves with reduced emissions, has scooped global award from Ene

The sylvan campus of Indian Institute of Science (IISc) does not represent the chaos of Bengaluru, but it was recently part of an experiment that could one day save the city from chaos.

This paper analyses the weather conditions of winter 2017 in Australia and draws conclusions about the subsequent impact of this dry and hot weather on crops and livestock, energy systems and bushfire risk, and the role of climate change in influencing these winter weather conditions.

Roadway design aims to maximize functionality, safety, and longevity. The materials used for construction, however, are often selected on the assumption of a stationary climate. Anthropogenic climate change may therefore result in rapid infrastructure failure and, consequently, increased maintenance costs, particularly for paved roads where temperature is a key determinant for material selection.

While carbon dioxide emissions from energy use must be the primary target of climate change mitigation efforts, land use and land cover change (LULCC) also represent an important source of climate forcing.

Authored by NewClimate Institute and The Climate Group and powered by CDP data, ‘States, cities and businesses leading the way: a first look at decentralized climate commitments in the US’ shows that the US can already meet half of its climate commitments under the Paris Agreement by 2025, if the 342 commitments included in the analysis are imp

The White House on Sunday insisted that the US will withdraw from the Paris climate accord unless it can re-enter on more favourable terms, denying reports that Washington was softening its stance

Evidence shows that growing climatic variability has severe impacts on water availability and quality, which in turn jeopardizes social stability and jobs for the younger generations.

The G20 has committed to phasing out inefficient fossil fuel subsidies. Such measures, intended to favour energy security or protect the poor from high fuel costs, encourage the extraction and wasteful consumption of fuels, undermine the competitiveness of renewable energy, and further aggravate climate change.

After steadily declining for over a decade, global hunger is on the rise again, affecting 815 million people in 2016, or 11 per cent of the global population, says a new edition of the annual United Nations report on world food security and nutrition.
