A CDKN-supported project in Namibia has produced a graphic harvest to highlight the implications of the latest research findings on what global warming of 1.5°C means for Namibia, a climate change hotspot and an already very dry, hot and water-stressed country. [more...]
Physical science of climate change
CDKN has been heavily involved in ‘digesting’ the scientific assessments of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and other scientific bodies, to make the key facts accessible, usable and shareable by diverse audiences. Explore here some of our communications toolkits to help you understand and share the key messages of the IPCC’s work.
FEATURE: Urban development must be planned and climate-resilient – Experience from Rajshahi City, Bangladesh
Abdulla–Al Kafy argues that development in cities needs to be better planned, more sustainable, inclusive, and climate-resilient to minimise the impacts on the urban climate and ecosystems. [more...]
In late April 2020, lead authors from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change gathered virtually to discuss the mitigation of climate change. They held an open event on 30 April, to reach out to the public and discuss their findings. Access the recordings here. [more...]
In Peru’s remote areas, the country's first energy school for women and installation of solar panels are improving quality of life and equipping women to lead change in their communities. Sally Jabiel reports. [more...]
As part of the CDKN-funded project, Strengthening regional climate change governance through integrating gender-responsive climate action, the University of Namibia team have produced a graphic harvest on what global warming of 1.5°C means for Namibia. [more]…
GUIDE: The IPCC’s Special Report on Climate Change and Land: What’s in it for Latin America? (Spanish)
CDKN has launched a new guide which unpacks the Special Report for Spanish speaking decision-makers in Latin America: 'The IPCC's Special Report on Climate Change and Land: What's in it for Latin America?' [more]…
Resources from our partners
This guide aims to make the findings of the IPCC's special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5°C accessible to practitioners and policy-makers working at global and regional scales. It provides an interpretation of the findings with a focus on the adaptation implications.
What are the implications of sea-level rise for a 1.5°C, 2°C and 3°C rise in global mean temperatures in vulnerable deltas?
This paper shows how sea level rise under a 1.5, 2 or 3C increase in global temperature will affect Bangladesh, based on analysis of changes in glood depth, area, and population affected under the Delta Dynamic Integrated Emulator Model.
