Managing the Impacts of Climate Change on Poverty
 
02:12
Poor people are already at high risk from climate-related shocks, including crop failures from reduced rainfall, spikes in food prices after extreme weather events, and increased incidence of diseases after heat waves and floods. Without rapid, inclusive and climate-smart development, together with emissions-reductions efforts that protect the poor, there could be more than 100 million additional people in poverty by 2030, particularly in Africa and South Asia.

Waters of Paradise - Adapting to Climate Change in the Maldives
 
11:33
The Maldives is one of the wonders of the world. Located in the Indian Ocean and made of 1192 coral islands, it is also the world’s lowest lying country. The highest natural point is just 2.4 meters above sea level. Today, one of the main problems for Maldivians is water. And it is likely to get worse with Climate Change. While Northern islands face drinking water shortages during the dry season, from April to May, most Southern islands face a different problem: flooding.The United Nations Development Programme with support from the Green Climate Fund is supporting the Government of the Maldives, to ensure that most vulnerable islands have year-round access to potable water and that they can cope with floods on their own. Nearly half of its population lives in Male, the capital of the islands, in less than 1.4 square kilometers. The rest is spread over 186 small, scattered islands. Maldivians have lived for centuries from coconuts and fishing. There are no rivers or streams on any of the islands. Except for Malé and a handful of other islands, most islands rely on rain for drinking water. Islands affected by floods and shortages of potable water receive relief from the capital island Malé. Transportation costs are high with the Maldives scattered geography. This makes emergency relief very expensive for a government already struggling economically. Climate change is expected to bring stronger storms, and longer periods without rainfall. A rise in the ocean’s temperature and acidification has had devastating effects on coral reefs, affecting tourism and fisheries, both critical to the livelihoods of most Maldivians. Damaged reefs also function less effectively as a first line of defense against sea swells and flooding. Until the nineties, Maldivians used groundwater for drinking. But over the past decade, the groundwater of most islands got contaminated. The freshwater lenses of most islands was badly affected by the Tsunami of 2004 and poorly planned urbanization. As a result, today, rainwater, together with water produced using desalination and expensive bottled water are the only potable water options. In the past ten years, the National Disasters Management Center in Malé had to send emergency shipments of water to about half of the 186 inhabited islands during the dry season. An expensive solution that sometimes can take up to two weeks to arrive. Most households have one tank of 2500L and fill it by collecting rain from their roofs. Bigger families might even have 2 or 3 tanks, since one is not enough for them to make it through the dry season. When water supply ends, households cope by borrowing from neighbors, by buying bottled water or by receiving water relief from Male.

How to green the world's deserts and reverse climate change | Allan Savory
 
22:20
"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.

Firms need to perform risk assessments of floods, water stress, extreme heat, storms, and sea level rise, experts say. They should also incorporate the long-term impact of climate change into business planning and strategic decisions. Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, and Michael Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg L.P., highlight the way these major issues affect global markets.

20. Managing Coastal Resources in an Era of Climate Change
 
43:43
Environmental Politics and Law (EVST 255) The lecture reviews the legal and economic strategies that can be used to manage coastal development. Over half of the United States population lives in coastal areas and will be affected by sea level rise and more intense storms. The lecture looks at the conflict between property rights and efforts to protect coastal ecosystems through the use of eminent domain to create national seashores. Barrier islands such as Fire Island National Seashore and Cape Cod National Seashore are used as case studies; a variety of strategies have been employed to manage these constantly moving islands. The lecture also discusses the role insurance plays in coastal settlement patterns; changes in insurers' policies in high-risk coastal areas could change the way people settle in coastal regions. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

The draft Third National Climate Assessment (NCA) -- the final version is expected soon -- projects that the region's climate may become even more severe. These changes are having substantial adverse effects on the regional economy and quality of life, forcing local leaders to develop creative solutions to combat drought and other extreme conditions. How can the Southwest best address current impacts while also building climate resiliency to manage risk and foster long-term prosperity? The effects of climate change already are being felt in the Southwest, which the NCA defines as Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. Snowpack levels have fallen over the past 50 years, limiting a key source of the region's water supply. From 2001-2010, the streamflow of the region's major rivers was 5-37 percent lower than the 20th century average. Prolonged droughts and insect infestations have made forest ecosystems more vulnerable to wildfires and disease. Rising sea levels have increased flooding and erosion in California's coastal areas. Climate change is expected to disrupt the livelihoods of many in the Southwest. Today, 56 million Americans live in the region. By 2050, its population is projected to rise to 94 million, putting additional strain on water resources. Water scarcity threatens the region's irrigation-dependent agriculture sector, which accounts for 79 percent of regional water withdrawals. The Southwest is home to more than half of the nation's high-value specialty crops, such as vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Because these crops are particularly vulnerable to weather extremes, climate change will likely reduce yields. Many state and local authorities in the Southwest are moving forward with climate adaptation initiatives. California released a draft revision of its adaptation strategy in December 2013. New Mexico's Active Water Resource Management program, which gives the state the tools to administer scarce water resources in cases of drought, has been cited as a model for other states. Salt Lake City, Tucson and Flagstaff formed the Western Adaptation Alliance in 2010 to share resources and best practices to improve local resiliency. The Alliance has grown to include Denver, Las Vegas, Phoenix, and others. https://vimeo.com/92329118 Climate climate change Climate change effect Climate change speech Climate change discussion Climate change explain Global warming Global warming documentary Global warming effects Global warming effect on earth Global warming effect on the environment Global warming effects on humans climate changes climate change effects impacts of climate change climate change causes drier hotter climate risks Southwest The Environmental and Energy Study Institute (EESI) impacts of climate change FOLLOW ME ON: MY CHANNEL: http://bit.ly/1kcta6h MY FACE BOOK: http://on.fb.me/1V3kWBT GOOGLE PLUS: http://bit.ly/1KeT7mX

Measuring and Managing Resilience Under Climate Change in Northern Great Lake Forests
 
59:18
PRESENTER: Matthew Duveneck - Post Doctoral Fellow, Harvard Forest, Harvard University TITLE: Measuring and managing resilience under climate change in northern Great Lake forests DATE: September 12th, 12-1pm TOPIC: Some of the most dramatic climate change effects to forests may be a decline in resilience to acute disturbances. I assessed the interactions of climate change, resilience, and management alternatives of northern Great Lake forests using a simulation modeling approach using LANDIS-II. I assessed resilience as the recovery of forest identity represented by two axes (i.e. aboveground biomass and species composition) following simulated fire. Simulations of the high emission climate scenario resulted in a decline in resilience across management scenarios. A Production of the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics, an affiliate of the Rubenstein School for Environment & Natural Resources at the University of Vermont.

Dave Peterson: Understanding and Managing the Effects of Climate Change on Forests
 
25:11
Dave Peterson, Senior Research Biologist, U.S. Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station A warmer climate will cause gradual changes in the distribution and abundance of plant species in forests of Washington, but the biggest changes will occur in response to rare disturbance events—drought, wildfire, insects—in conjunction with other stressors. David will discuss our scientific understanding of the effects of climatic variability and change on trees; how these effects can be translated from natural systems to urban, suburban, exurban landscapes; and how proper plant selection can accommodate climate change.

Managing Risk in a Changing Climate
 
26:47
Climate change poses real threats that call for tough choices under deep uncertainty. Louisiana has been called “the canary in the coal mine” for climate impacts as it reports rates of relative sea level rise among the highest in the world as more and more land disappears into the Gulf of Mexico. The public television documentary Managing Risk in a Changing Climate examines how Louisiana decision makers engage with researchers and stakeholders to inform choices about how to manage risks driven by changing sea levels and storms. Featuring some of the nation’s leading climate experts and narrated by Peter Coyote, Managing Risk in a Changing Climate examines one of humanity’s most pressing challenges through the lens of the many academic disciplines needed to address the impacts and surrounding economic, social, and environmental issues that come with managing risk in a changing climate. Scientists and policymakers have identified the potential for Earth systems threshold responses, or “tipping points,” that will potentially cause dramatic climate impacts. A melting of the Greenland ice sheet, for example, would cause sea-level rise that could threaten the sustainability of low-lying regions like the Louisiana lower Mississippi delta.

Managing The Risks of Climate Change While Averting Economic Disaster
 
29:57
Guest: Dr. Dale Jorgenson, Ph.D., Samuel W. Morris University Professor of Economics at Harvard University, and Professor of Policy at John F. Kennedy School of Government. Discussion on how the economics of 'doing nothing' to avert climate change 'in US & around the world' will increase coastal disasters, flooding, food shortages with the potential to bankrupt millions--including the insurance industry--costing millions in economic losses, and ultimately loss of human life in the US & abroad. Dr. Jorgenson is the author of "Double-Dividend."
