Adaptation Gap Report 2020

The UNEP Adaptation Gap Report 2020 finds that while nations have advanced in planning, huge gaps remain in finance for developing countries and bringing adaptation projects to the stage where they bring real protection against climate impacts such as droughts, floods and sea-level...

Resilient Water Infrastructure Design Brief

The purpose of the Resilient Water Infrastructure Design Brief is to guide users on how resilience can be built into the engineering design of their project. With a focus on the three natural hazards most likely to affect water and sanitation infrastructure (droughts, floods, and high winds from...

Contribution of historical precipitation change to US flood damages

Precipitation extremes have increased in many regions of the United States, suggesting that climate change may be exacerbating the cost of flooding. However, the impact of historical precipitation change on the cost of US flood damages remains poorly quantified. Applying empirical analysis to...

SDG 13: Health and climate action

Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 is to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. SDG 3 is to ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. Climate and health are closely linked: action on one gets results in the other.

Impacts of Climate Change on Georgia’s Coastal Zone : Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation...

The higher-level purpose of this study is to provide information to be used to raise the ambition of Georgia’s nationally determined contribution (NDCs) and to consider adaptation targets for the Black Sea coast of Georgia. The study also aims to highlight how supporting a blue economy can...

Long-Term Improvement in Precautions for Flood Risk Mitigation: A Case Study in the Low-Lying...

Local actors appear as inseparable components of the integrated flood risk mitigation strategy in Vietnam. Recognizing this fact, this study examined the long-term improvement in precautions taken by commune authorities and households between two major floods in 1999 and 2017 by applying both...

Strengthening adaptation-mitigation linkages for a low-carbon, climate-resilient future

Strengthening linkages between climate change adaptation and mitigation policies can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of actions in support of a low-carbon, climate-resilient economic development. This policy paper provides an overview and a discussion of linkages, shedding light on the...

Exposure to natural hazard events unassociated with policy change for improved disaster risk...

Natural hazard events provide opportunities for policy change to enhance disaster risk reduction (DRR), yet it remains unclear whether these events actually fulfill this transformative role around the world. Here, we investigate relationships between the frequency (number of events) and severity...

Identifying critical risk factors and responses of river dredging projects for knowledge...

This study addresses dredging as one of the methods that is most commonly adopted by the Taiwan Water Resources Agency (WRA) to ensure the smooth flow of rivers and their ability to discharge water, protecting lives and property from flood disasters. The paper identifies critical risk factors...

Pamoja voices climate-resilience planning toolkit

The Pamoja Voices climate toolkit presents a simple and affordable methodology to identify the climate change adaptation priorities of men, women and young people using participatory learning and action methods. It is intended for use by local governments and community based organisations seeking...

Pamoja voices climate-resilience planning toolkit

The Pamoja Voices toolkit enables all voices and priorities within a cooperative — whether those of women, men or youth — to be heard, and to facilitate the collective identification of solutions to climate change, gender and day-to-day business challenges facing all members. This toolkit has...

Climate Action: Examples from the Red Cross Red Crescent and partners

Within the Red Cross Red Crescent, ambition and capacity to take climate action addressing the needs of the most vulnerable are rapidly growing. Climate change is now a key driver of risks, placing a huge burden upon lives, livelihoods, well-being and the humanitarian system itself. The Red...

Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change and Informal Settlements in Coastal Cities

This study is part of the UNRISD project “Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change in Southeast Asian Coastal Cities” which explores adaptation decisionmaking processes and barriers to transformative solutions in order to inform more progressive policy making in the context of Southeast...

Transformative Adaptation and Social Justice in Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam

This case study is part of the UNRISD project “Transformative Adaptation to Climate Change in Coastal Cities” which explores adaptation decision-making processes and barriers to transformative solutions in order to inform more progressive policy making in the context of Southeast Asian coastal...

The Impact of Flooding on Urban Transit and Accessibility: A Case Study of Kinshasa

Transportation networks underpin socioeconomic development by enabling the movement of goods and people. However, little is known about how flooding disrupts transportation systems in urban areas in developing country cities, despite these natural disasters occurring frequently. This study...

Predictive Deep Learning for Flood Evacuation Planning and Routing

This research was completed in tandem as a project funded through MoDOT and the MidAmerica Transportation Center. It used deep learning methods, along with geospatial data from the USGS National Map and other public geospatial data sources, to develop forecasting tools capable of assessing...

Flood exposure and social vulnerability in the United States

Human exposure to floods continues to increase, driven by changes in hydrology and land use. Adverse impacts amplify for socially vulnerable populations, who disproportionately inhabit flood-prone areas. This study explores the geography of flood exposure and social vulnerability in the...

‘A low and watery place’: A case study of flood history and sustainable community engagement in...

To address increasing flood risks and ensure flood management interventions are appropriate for local contexts, the English system of flood risk management strives for devolution of responsibilities to actors previously uninvolved in professional decision-making, and advocates for a comprehensive...

Comparing the scale of modelled and recorded current flood risk: Results from England

As the Sendai framework recognises, understanding the nature and severity of risk is an important prerequisite to sensible risk reducing measures. The UK has been in the forefront of assessing the scale of flood risk at a national level to inform investment and policy directions but the scale of...

Role of pre-disaster discussions on preparedness on consensus-making of integrated flood...

In October 2019, Typhoon Hagibis struck wide areas of Japan, including the Abukuma River Basin and caused a serious flood disaster. Four months later, based on the challenges of the disaster, relevant national and local authorities have agreed to carry out an integrated flood management (IFM)...
