Responding to Rising Seas

There is an urgent need to ensure that coastal areas are adapting to the impacts of climate change. Risks in these areas are projected to increase because of rising sea levels and development pressures. This report reviews how OECD countries can use their national adaptation planning processes to respond to this challenge. Specifically, the report examines how countries approach shared costs and responsibilities for coastal risk management and how this encourages or hinders risk-reduction behaviour by households, businesses and different levels of government. The report outlines policy tools that national governments can use to encourage an efficient, effective and equitable response to ongoing coastal change. It is informed by new analysis on the future costs of sea-level rise, and the main findings from four case studies (Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the United Kingdom).

The overriding questions are: How can the goal of “climate-neutral and climate-resilient Alps” be achieved by 2050 and what does modern natural hazard management look like?

Anpassung an den Klimawandel: Gute Beteiligungspraxis im Alpenraum

Die Broschüre stellt gute Beispiele der Beteiligungspraxis bei der Anpassung an den Klimawandel im Alpenraum vor. Sie ist ein Ergebnis des Projektes „GoApply – Multidimensional Governance of Climate Change Adaptation in Policy Making and Practice“, welches im EU-Alpenraumprogramm gefördert wird. Sie richtet sich vor allem an interessierte Akteure aus der Verwaltungspraxis und aus zivilgesellschaftlichen Organisationen, insbesondere auf lokaler und regionaler Ebene. Die Beispiele sollen zu Konzeption und Umsetzung von Beteiligungsformaten inspirieren und Hinweise für die erfolgreiche Umsetzung liefern.

Adaptation challenges and opportunities for the European energy system

All parts of Europe’s energy system, from availability of energy sources to energy consumption, are potentially vulnerable to climate change and extreme weather events. To secure reliable supply of clean energy, Europe’s energy system needs to adapt and become more climate resilient, the report states.

Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Management 2019

The Global Assessment Report on Disaster Risk Reduction (GAR) is a biennial global assessment of disaster risk reduction highlighting what’s new, spotting emerging trends, revealing disturbing patterns, examining behaviour and presenting progress in reducing risk. GAR is known for breaking new ground on risk and its reduction – challenging prevailing norms and provoking us all to re-examine our behaviour and our choices.
