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.
Belén Desmaisón, from the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru, analyses water stress in Peru’s coastal towns with a focus on Lima, where 75% of the water supply comes from the Andean glaciers. These glaciers, as detailed in the IPCC Special Report on Oceans and the Cryosphere, are currently disappearing. [more...]

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.
