The destruction wrought by Cyclone Idai in southern Africa this month shows weather warnings must spur action and infrastructure has to be built with climate risks in mind if people are to be kept

Sharp and potentially devastating temperature rises of 3C to 5C in the Arctic are now inevitable even if the world succeeds in cutting greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Paris agreement, research has found.

Politicians in Papua New Guinea have thrown their support behind a plan to power the country’s development through coal.

This paper proposes a framework for defining risk metrics to capture climate resilience in infrastructure assets.

Recent studies suggest that Antarctica has the potential to contribute up to ~15 m of sea-level rise over the next few centuries. The evolution of the Antarctic Ice Sheet is driven by a combination of climate forcing and non-climatic feedbacks.

Ice on Greenland is melting four times faster than it did just 16 years ago, a study reports.

The world is facing the increased risk of political confrontations between major powers, which is hindering solutions to challenges like climate change warns the 14th edition of Global risks report.

Despite the lack of robust empirical evidence, a growing number of media reports attempt to link climate change to the ongoing violent conflicts in Syria and other parts of the world, as well as to the migration crisis in Europe. Exploiting bilateral data on asylum seeking applications for 157 countries over the period 2006–2015, we assess the determinants of refugee flows using a gravity model which accounts for endogenous selection in order to examine the causal link between climate, conflict and forced migration.

Greenland's ice sheet, the second largest in the world, is melting in winter due to heat from the ocean, recent research says.
