Bhutan is already facing significant impacts of climate change due to its mountainous and glacial terrain. The 1.5-degree scenario is a tipping point for glacial melting and water stability in Bhutan. It is therefore absolutely crucial to develop alternative options to deal with any catastrophic situation. The results of this research demonstrate...

Coastal communities are disproportionately affected by the impacts of climate change on the ocean, including depleted marine ecosystems, sea-level rise, and coastal hazards such as storm surges. These climate changerelated impacts have been experienced by Guimaras, a small island province located in Western Visayas, Philippines. IGES and PEMSEA...
Commissioned Report
The oceans have been warming globally for the past 50 years, and since the early 1990s they have been warming about twice as fast as before that time. Ocean warming and associated environmental changes are projected to continue over the century, leading to more severe extreme weather events and an increased risk of coastal disasters such as storm...
Training or Learning Material
The aim of this e-learning course is to learn how the climate projection tool “ ClimoCast ” can be used in the NAP process. The tool covers all countries around the world, and allows users to compare different climate scenarios and models, as well as downscale the results to the sub-national level, which is very useful for adaptation planning. The...
