The main objective of this report is to provide a regional synthesis of the current climate change mitigation and adaptation commitments in the agriculture sectors of the Southern Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia (SEECA) region, as set forth in the NDCs, and to identify opportunities for enhancing mitigation and adaptation ambitions, capt

The Global Water Partnership (GWP) has launched a report at the Katowice Climate Change Conference, analyzing water-related actions that countries have included in their nationally determined contributions (NDCs).

This book provides a critical, evidence-based analysis of REDD+ implementation so far, without losing sight of the urgent need to reduce forest-based emissions to prevent catastrophic climate change. REDD+ as envisioned has not been tested at scale. Results-based payment, the novel feature of REDD+, has gone untested.

The ten successful case studies show how the CSA approach has been applied in the regional context to benefit both the agricultural sectors and farming communities.

Even a small increase in global warming will have profound impacts on communities, new ACT report finds. Climate change experts from the ACT Alliance network have published a report assessing the threats posed by climate change on the sustainable development goals (SDG) and disaster risk reduction.

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. This report, Volume II, draws on the foundational science described in Volume I, the Climate Science Special Report (CSSR), which was published in 2017.

This report aims to inform the development of a climate change strategy in the Northern Territory (of Australia). It serves to highlight examples of how the Northern Territory Government can mitigate climate risk and realise the significant opportunities associated with implementing climate solutions.

This paper explores the consequences on the labour markets of structural changes induced by decarbonisation policies. These policies are likely going to have consequences on labour-income distribution given i) existing rigidities in the labour markets, and ii) their different impacts on sectors and on job categories.

Article 6 of the Paris Agreement establishes a framework for international cooperation that enables countries to engage in international carbon market mechanisms. Article 6.4 establishes a new crediting mechanism with international oversight.

The carbon footprint of food loss and waste (FLW) is estimated to be up to 3.49 gigatons of carbon dioxide equivalent (gtCO2e), representing up to 6-10% of total anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing FLW can reduce the emission intensity of agricultural production.
