In just 30 years, cities around the world will face dramatically higher risks from extreme heat, coastal flooding, power blackouts and food and water shortages unless climate-changing emissions are

At least 4,500 people have been affected by the climate change-induced decline, estimated at about 65 per cent.

It can be easy to overlook the monstrous scale of the Antarctic ice sheet. Ice, thick enough in many places to bury mountains, covers a continent roughly the size of the US and Mexico combined.

A science symposium has opened in Accra, to create a platform for advancing discussions on the contribution of climate and environmental services, to reduce the negative impacts of climate change o

Nearly 19-million people were displaced because of climate change in 2017‚ said a senior UN climate leader at the opening of a global conference on climate adaptation in Cape Town on Tuesday.

Major South African centres are at risk from the effects of climate change, says an international report.

Monsoon withdrawal delayed over Central India

Dry riverbeds are contributing more carbon emissions than previously thought, says a study that could help scientists better understand how to fight climate change.

Future projections of precipitation at regional scales are vital to inform climate change adaptation activities. Therefore, is it important to quantify projected changes and associated uncertainty, and understand model processes responsible. This paper addresses these challenges for southern Africa and the adjacent Indian Ocean focusing on the local wet season. Precipitation projections for the end of the twenty-first century indicate a pronounced dipole pattern in the CMIP5 multimodel mean.

Windhoek — Namibia's oldest and largest trees, the baobabs, some of which have lived for 1,700 years, have begun dying in the last 13 years, leaving scientists stunted.
