This study, compiled by Meister Consultants Group, Inc., analyzes examples of climate change adaptation strategies and measures from around the world. By highlighting adaptation efforts in 16 countries across the globe the study shows how adaptation strategies can be successful. The featured case studies are from developing and emerging countries such as Bangladesh, Tanzania and Brazil, and are also from industrialized countries such as Great Britain, Netherlands, Switzerland Australia. As mentioned in Dr. Mojib Latif's preface, "[t]he great variety of examples and the identification of factors for a successful policy are helpful guidelines for all who are active in the climate sector" (Floating Houses and Mosquito Nets, 2009, p. 3).
What we know, do not know, and need to know about climate change vulnerability in the western Canadian Arctic: a systematic literature reviewSubmitted by andrea on Wed, 2010-02-17 03:38
This letter systematically reviews and synthesizes scientific and gray literature publications (n = 420) to identify and characterize the nature of climate change vulnerability in the Inuvialuit Settlement Region of the western Canadian Arctic and identify gaps in understanding. The literature documents widespread evidence of climate change, with implications for human and biophysical systems. Adaptations are being employed to manage changing conditions and are indicative of a high adaptive capacity.
