This paper investigates the impact of exposure to extreme temperature on crop yields of a range of crops cultivated in the State of Karnataka, India. The crops examined in this study are rice, sorghum (jowar), finger millet (ragi), and pigeon pea.

Megacities are predominantly concentrated along coastlines, making them exposed to a diverse mix of natural hazards. The assessment of climatic hazard risk to cities rarely has captured the multiple interactions that occur in complex urban systems. We present an improved method for urban multi-hazard risk assessment.

This BAMS special report presents assessments of how human-caused climate change may have affected the strength and likelihood of individual extreme events. This is the second year that scientists have identified extreme weather events that they said could not have happened without warming of the climate through human-induced climate change.

The Global Climate Risk Index 2019 analyses to what extent countries and regions have been affected by impacts of weather-related loss events (storms, fl

This report reflects the data disclosed by 38 regional governments that are members of the 'RegionsAdapt' initiative.
