Merely by conservation of nature, and reforestation, about 37 percent of global greenhouse gas emission could be reduced by 2030.

Nature can provide cost-effective and permanent solutions to check climate change, so much so that it can reduce over a third (37%) of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030, a new study by scientists fr

Heatwaves with large impacts have increased in the recent past and will continue to increase under future warming. However, the implication for population exposure to severe heatwaves remains unexplored. Here, we characterize maximum potential human exposure (without passive/active reduction measures) to severe heatwaves in India. We show that if the global mean temperature is limited to 2.0ºC above pre-industrial conditions, the frequency of severe heatwaves will rise by 30-times the current climate by the end -21st century.

Melting ice is causing coastal waters in Greenland to become less saline, which may in turn affect marine life as well as the global ocean currents that keep Europe warm, a study warns.

WHO and the Government of South Australia have published the case study book on Health in All Policies (HiAP), which describes experiences from around the world in the context of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda. Although policy-makers are increasingly aware of the need to work across sectors, change is not easy.
