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.

European State of the Climate 2018

The full European State of the Climate 2018 gives a general description of the year as a whole, including a view of the European sector of the Arctic. It illustrates in further detail three longer events in 2018 where there were persistent weather conditions over several months, and explores associated variations in sunshine duration, vegetation and soil moisture, river discharge, wildfires, glaciers and sea ice. Finally, a number of key indicators for climate change are highlighted, placing the events and their impacts into a longer-term global context.

Promet, Heft 101: Klimakommunikation

Warum wissen wir so viel und handeln so wenig? Diese Frage war der Startschuss zum ersten K3 Kongress in Salzburg vor zwei Jahren. Die Antworten darauf waren vielfältig. In der Zeitschrift Promet, dem Fachjournal des Deutschen Wetterdienstes (DWD), wurden 16 dieser Antworten dokumentiert.

Jahresbericht 2018 der SCNAT

Die naturwissenschaftlichen Sammlungen der Schweiz mit geschätzten 61 Millionen Objekten bilden einen nationalen Schatz. Doch dieser Reichtum an gespeicherter Information ist für Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft nur mit grossem Aufwand zugänglich. Der Erhalt von Expertenwissen und eine virtuelle Infrastruktur zur Vernetzung der Objektsammlungen und Datenbanken sind notwendig, um den Schweizer Wissenschaftsplatz und Innovationsstandort nachhaltig zu stützen. Mehr dazu und was die Akademie der Naturwissenschaften 2018 sonst noch beschäftigte, lesen Sie im neuen Jahresbericht.

WBGU Gutachten: Unsere gemeinsame digitale Zukunft

Die Digitalisierung geht mit immer weiter steigenden Energie- und Ressourcenverbräuchen sowie globalen Produktions- und Konsummustern einher, die die Ökosysteme noch massiver belasten. Die technischen Innovationsschübe übersetzen sich nicht automatisch in Nachhaltigkeitstransformationen, sondern müssen eng mit Nachhaltigkeitsleitbildern und -politiken gekoppelt werden.

Decarbonisation of transport: options and challenges

This EASAC report reviews options for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from European transport. It argues for stronger policies to bridge the gap between the GHG emission reductions that will be delivered by current policies and the levels needed to limit global warming to less than 2°C or even 1.5°C (Paris Agreement).

Unequal exposure and unequal impacts: social vulnerability to air pollution, noise and extreme temperatures in Europe

Targeted action is needed to better protect the poor, the elderly and children from environmental hazards like air and noise pollution and extreme temperatures, especially in Europe’s eastern and southern regions. This European Environment Agency (EEA) report warns that the health of Europe’s most vulnerable citizens remains disproportionately affected by these hazards, despite overall improvements in Europe’s environmental quality.
