Episode 3 – Adaptation and mitigation (Subtitles available in English) More information on the GreenFacts website: http://www.greenfacts.org/en/digests/climate-change.htm Climate change has already had clear impacts on natural and human systems. Over the coming decades, based on the various scenarios of emission of greenhouse gases, the range with which climate can change is quite wide, and depends on policy decisions that we take now. The risk of negative impacts results from the interaction between the climate-related hazards and the vulnerability and exposure of both natural systems and human populations. The precise level of climate change that would trigger abrupt and irreversible change remains uncertain, but the higher the global temperature gets, the more risk there is. How can we, as individuals, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions? As individuals we can substantially lower our carbon footprint and emissions by changing our lifestyle : diet habits, reducing food waste, and modifying our consumption patterns such as our demand for mobility and modes of transportation, energy use in households, and choosing longer‐lasting products. Such changes in behaviour may improve energy efficiency by up to 20 to 30 % already in 2030 and in developed countries, by up to 50% by mid‐century. The decisions and actions that are taken now will have a long-lasting impact on the climate. At a political level or in our daily lives, we can make a difference.

Global warming, especially due to an increase in the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is a major cause of climate change. The GEF Small Grants Programme supports projects that address climate change mitigation, which is reducing or avoiding the emission of greenhouse gases; and climate change adaptation, which is assisting communities, especially in developing countries to become better able to cope with the negative impacts of climate change.

"We know enough about climate change -- It's time for decisions now!" Animated film. Length: 5'42" The impacts of climate change destroy people's livelihoods and homes. They damage our infrastructure and disrupt communication and trade. Moreover, climate change is endangering development successes and the poor and marginalized are often affected the most. Even if we were to stop emissions instantly, the world would not stop warming immediately due to the amount of gases we have already emitted. That's why we must do both: reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to inevitable climate change. But how can we adapt, considering that the precise extent and form of climate change aren't known?

It is a fact that humans contribute to global gas emissions which in turn contributes to global warming, so the question is, what are humans doing to counteract this? Well, they have two choices, to reduce their emissions and change their lifestyle (Mitigation) or to create defences to guard areas from the certain affects that arise from global warming such as super storms and increased hazards (Adaptation). In this first part documentary, I look at what certain countries are doing in terms of Mitigation. Music: Kevin MacLeod

Bangladesh is highly susceptible to climate change. Floods, cyclones and droughts are likely to increase as the Earth warms. Poor farmers are already trying to adapt. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2Hea5EK Melting glaciers, droughts, rising sea-levels - these are just some of the environmental disruptions that are likely to worsen with climate change. But dangerous climate change is not just something that might happen in the future. The earth is already warmed by almost 1 degree Celsius since the dawn of the Industrial Age - the effects are already being felt now. Vulnerable communities are trying to adapt. Bangladesh is more at risk from climate change than almost any other country. It's prone to flooding, cyclones and drought. Climate change may already be exacerbating those things. Bangladesh sits at the bottom of a Delta plane were three main rivers converge. It's straddled by the melting Himalayan glaciers in the north and the rising waters of the Bay of Bengal in the south. That makes it highly susceptible to flooding. In 2009, cyclone Aila tore through Bangladesh, uprooting trees, flattening homes and destroying crops. Along the southern coastal regions the storm left behind salty water in areas it had inundated. Fields that had once support agriculture were deemed useless. To adapt to their newly saline environment, locals have had to change their source of food production. Through a project funded by the World Bank villagers have switched to raising crabs which thrive in saltwater. Villagers rear the crabs and sell them at a local market where they're then resold by buyers who shipped them to Dakha. Adding to this problem, in some areas farmers deliberately inundate their lands with salty water so they can farm shrimp rather than crops, which is more profitable but problematic for the environment. But the salinity creates another daunting problem - it pollutes local groundwater and makes it more difficult to access safe drinking water. Climate change is worsening this effect. Cyclones are more common, river flow has diminished, and salty water from the Bay of Bengal has been reaching ever farther into the coastal lands travelling up rivers and polluting freshwater supplies that are used for drinking and irrigation. NGOs working with the Community Climate Change Project has sought to address this problem. They've provided water tanks so locals can harvest rainwater and have helped fund a desalination plant that provides clean drinking water. In the north of the country, local livelihoods have also been threatened by water. Many villagers are beholden to the rivers. When the rivers flood, the soil used for agriculture has disappeared. Not only have they lost their homes and their crops but also their means of survival. In Ranpur, villagers have learned a new farming technique that works on sandbars or chars where all the soil has been eroded. Farmers dig out holes in the char fill them with compost and plant pumpkins. Pumpkins are preserved and can be sold during the rainy season providing income throughout the year. Adaptation projects such as the ones being carried out in Bangladesh have had a huge impact on those involved but Bangladesh is not the only place where the effects of climate change are already being felt and adapted to. Rotterdam is building floating pavilions to pilot a city that rises with its sea levels. London will improve the Thames Barrier so it can better protect the city from floods. A decade ago adaptation was almost taboo in international discussions about climate change because it was believed to distract attention from the vital task of stopping global warming altogether. Now those are recognized as important. But can keep them in poor countries like Bangladesh adapt quickly enough? We don't know yet. Richer countries are better able to withstand the potential shocks that climate change will bring. If change is slow enough, it gives people more time to act and increases the odds of success. World leaders tend to talk about stopping climate change. It would help poor farmers enormously if it could only be slowed down. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

Climate change and its vulnerabilities can be countered through capacity building and awareness creation among people. One of the measures people need to know are the mitigation and adaptation strategies to take in order to curb climate change. Example of mitigation strategies are initiating afforestation programs and Reforestation programs to enhance carbon sinks and increase carbon dioxide sequestration thus reducing global warming. Adaptation strategies that can be adopted is people embracing use of renewable energy such as use of electricity which is eco-friendly.

April 18, 2012 - Session developed by Dominick DellaSala (Geos Institute). Presentations by Stephen Gray (USGS Alaska Science Center), David D'Amore (USFS PNW Research Station), Jessi Kershner (EcoAdapt), Domonick DellaSala (Geos Institute), Dan Siemann (National Wildlife Federation), and Allison Bidlack (EcoAdapt) Session Abstract: Temperate rainforests of the Pacific coastal region have a tight association with cool, moist climates that have provided ideal conditions for rainforest assemblages to persist for up to 7,000 years. A rapidly changing climate coupled with cumulative land-use stressors present unprecedented challenges to managers and conservationists wishing to maintain rainforest ecosystems and the critical ecosystem services we depend upon. Panelists will share lessons learned from adaptation strategies conducted across the region, including key findings, obstacles, and pragmatic steps for answering the question of whether there is sufficient time to save all the pieces. This video is from a symposium in Juneau, Alaska from April 17-20, 2012 titled Coastal Temperate Rainforests: Integrating Science, Resource Management, and Communities.

This webcast is currently available for viewing only and is NO LONGER APPLICABLE FOR AICP CM credits. November 19, 2014 Sponsored By: Regional & Intergovernmental Planning Division Description: Drought is becoming an increasingly important issue for planners at the local, regional and state levels. Drought impacts vary by region, but it affects everything from the most obvious -- water supply -- to ecosystems, the built environment, regional economies and human health. Mitigation and adaptation to drought requires attention and collaboration among planners, water engineers and natural resource experts. In 1998, more than one-third of the U.S. was affected by drought. The event began on the West Coast, spanned the Rocky Mountain region and, eventually, the upper Midwest. In 2007-2008, a drought impacted Georgia, resulting in inter-state conflicts over water rights. Today, California is in the midst of a truly historic drought event. Tools and techniques, such as those outlined in the APA Planning Advisory Service report, “Planning and Drought,” are emerging to bring together the various disciplines involved in water management and land use. The Drought Planning Toolbox webinar will feature speakers from California, Colorado and the Susquehanna River Commission who will share their experiences and best practices from their regions in preparing for and responding to drought. Highlighted strategies will focus on mitigation, adaptation and drought planning; participants will learn about drought plans adopted by states and regions and key elements of drought mitigation and adaptation. Participants also will learn about how collaboration and intergovernmental coordination is essential for drought adaptation and resilience efforts. And finally, participants will be provided information on how strategies have been put into practice in California, Colorado and the Susquehanna Basin states.

The paper presented in the video contributes to the normative literature on mitigation and adaptation by framing the question of their optimal policy balance in the context of catastrophic climate risk. The analysis uses the WITCH integrated assessment model with a module that models the endogenous risk of experiencing an economic catastrophe if temperature increases above a certain threshold. We find that the risk of a catastrophic outcome would encourage countries to reduce emissions even in the absence of a coordinated global agreement on climate change and to realign the policy balance from adaptation toward more mitigation. Our analysis also shows that adaptation transfers from and strategic unilateral commitments to adaptation in developed countries appear to provide weak incentives for reducing emissions in developing countries. Thus our first conclusion is that precautionary considerations, rather than the ability to reduce smooth damage increases, justify mitigation as a fundamental policy option. Accordingly, adaptation is needed to cope with the non-catastrophic damages that countries would fail to address with mitigation Our second conclusion is that supporting adaptation in developing countries should be considered primarily as a mean for ensuring equity or improving development, and very marginally as a mitigation incentive.
