Agriculture in the Global South is innately susceptible to climatic variability and change.
In many arid and semi-mountainous regions of the developing world, drought is regularly cited as
a significant threat to agricultural systems. The objective of this study is to assess the impacts of
climate change on drought and land use and land cover...

Globally, hydrometeorological hazards have large impacts to agriculture output, as well as
human well-being. With climate change derived increasing frequency of extreme weather conditions,
the situation has becoming more severe. This study strives to evaluate both dry and wet conditions
in the Vietnamese Mekong Delta (VMD), also known as the...

More than 90 systematic reviews have been conducted on the topic of nature-based solutions for climate change adaptation (NBS-CCA). These prior reviews, however, are scattered across more than 45 different peer-reviewed journals and gray literature sources, making it difficult to follow all of the knowledge generated and remaining research gaps. In...

Detailed Land-Use and Land-Cover (LULC) information is of pivotal importance in, e.g., urban/rural planning, disaster management, and climate change adaptation. Recently, Deep Learning (DL) has emerged as a paradigm shift for LULC classification. To date, little research has focused on using DL methods for LULC mapping in semi-arid regions, and...

Effective policies to halt biodiversity loss require knowing which anthropogenic drivers are the most important direct causes. Whereas previous knowledge has been limited in scope and rigor, here we statistically synthesize empirical comparisons of recent driver impacts found through a wide-ranging review. We show that land/sea use change has been...

The emerging water crisis in India can be preempted by improving watershed management.
The data scare regions need open access satellite observations to mitigate watershed problems. The
water accounting plus (WA+) and open access earth observation datasets were applied to quantify
the beneficial and non-beneficial water consumption in the Betwa...

Rising land surface temperature (LST), urban heat island (UHI) effects, and stress on surface-, processed-, potable-, and ground-water resources are some undesirable ecological changes due to rapid urbanization. Treating and reusing city-generated wastewater for maintaining urban green spaces (UGS) helps in reducing/preventing groundwater...
