The Lancet Countdown: tracking progress on health and climate change was established to provide an independent, global monitoring system dedicated to tracking the health dimensions of the impacts of, and the response to, climate change. The Lancet Countdown tracks 41 indicators across five domains: climate change impacts, exposures, and vulnerability; adaptation, planning, and resilience for health; mitigation actions and health co-benefits; finance and economics; and public and political engagement.

The long-term warming trend has continued in 2018, with the average global temperature set to be the fourth highest on record. The 20 warmest years on record have been in the past 22 years, with the top four in the past four years, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).

The Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4) fulfills a US congressional mandate to report on climate change in the United States every four years, and contains two volumes.

The goal of limiting global mean warming to well below 2 °C, and possibly to 1.5 °C, emerged in the Paris Agreement, motivated by the belief that achieving these targets 'would significantly reduce the risks and impacts of climate change'.

To address the impact of climate change and variability on crops, horticulture, livestock, and fisheries, the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) has taken up a flagship programme Nation

This book provides insights into the loss and damage (L&D) discourse by highlighting state-of-the-art research from multiple disciplines as well as policy contexts related to L&D. It articulates the multiple concepts, principles and methods relevant for L&D, including those that have only recently become available.

This discussion paper introduces a series of studies on the effects of climate change on agriculture in Central America and the Andean region. It presents a coherent logic as to why climate change is important to the regions not only for agriculture but also regarding the issues of unemployment, food insecurity, and poverty.
