  • Climate Change Mitigation and Water

    Both natural and anthropogenic processes contribute significantly to climate change. Among the natural processes are changes in the energy emitted from the sun, the distance between the sun and the earth, and eruptions from volcanoes. The main anthropogenic processes include emissions of greenhouse gasses such as methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and ...

  • Climate change mitigation: overview of the environmental policy instruments

    Climate variability has been observed over a long period of time and is considered a natural process occurring on Earth. Climate change, however, is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere in addition to natural phenomena. Global climate governance requires a broad area of measures and policies to be implemented worldwide to tackle ...

  • Climate change mitigation’s best-kept secret

    Methane is a potent greenhouse gas — but there’s a lot we can do about it. At Blue Spruce Farm in Bridport, Vt., the black-and-white dairy cows are used to the routine. In what looks like a choreographed dance, 1,400 milk cows delicately step over the scrapers that run along the concrete floors and collect their ...

  • Overview of reported national policies and measures on climate change mitigation in Europe in 2015

    Information reported by Member States under the European Union Monitoring Mechanism Regulation This technical report presents a synthesis of the information on climate change mitigation policies and measures (PaMs) (1) reported in 2015 by Member States under the European Union (EU) Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) (2). The report aims to provide an overview of the main ...

  • Carbon dioxide ocean and ground storage as a method of climate change mitigation

    Global warming-induced climate change is one of the significant civilisation threats of the modern times. Human-induced enhanced global warming, via the greenhouse effect resulting from high carbon dioxide emissions, poses a substantial danger to the environment we live in. Consequences of global warming can be devastating for the present, but mainly for the future generations. This paper reviews ...

  • A study of wind energy contribution to global climate change mitigation

    The greenhouse gas emissions are mainly caused by the use of organic fuel. Global constraints on the emissions of greenhouse gases (first of all CO2 as the main greenhouse gas) will greatly affect the energy structure of the world especially in some regions. An optimisation model of world energy (GEM-10R) was used to study long-term prospects of world energy development in general and wind ...

  • Restoring Peatlands in Russia - Preventing peat fires, mitigating climate change

    Millions of hectares of drained and abandoned peatlands in European Russia are highly vulnerable to fires, such as those that covered Moscow in smoke during the extremely dry summer of 2010. Rewetting degraded peatlands, especially abandoned peat mining sites, and establishing a sustainable usage will prevent fires and their negative impacts on climate and biodiversity. Cause and threats ...

  • Unilateral climate change mitigation, carbon leakage and competitiveness: an application to the European Union

    The setting of binding targets for CO2 emission reductions for 2020 by the European Union (EU) alone has led to concerns that unilateral climate change mitigation may not only hamper the union's competitiveness, but also result in carbon leakage. The paper explores these claims through the deployment of a dynamic, nonlinear, macro-econometric simulation called the Energy-Environment-Economy (E3) ...

  • Peatlands – guidance for climate change mitigation by conservation, rehabilitation and sustainable use

    Peatlands provide many important ecosystem services, including water regulation, biodiversity conservation and carbon sequestration and storage. Because of the enormous size of the peat carbon pool, its high sensitivity for disturbance, the large emissions from a small land area (which continue long after conversion), and the virtual irreversibility of peat carbon losses, any further degradation ...

  • A review of the adaptation and mitigation of global climate change using sustainable drainage in cities

    Sustainable drainage (SUDS) is well known for its equal emphasis on water quality, water quantity, amenity and biodiversity. What is now beginning to be realised is that this approach can also help mitigate the impacts of global climate change (GCC) and provide assistance to city dwellers in adapting to the changes which have already occurred. By using case studies from around the world, this ...

  • Economics of climate change mitigation and adaptation: moving from impact assessment to vulnerability

    The article is based on a detailed literature review pertaining to conceptual and methodological issues of climate change impact and vulnerability assessment. The impact of climate change differs among geographical regions owing to the abject difference in the levels of income, production and consumption pattern, availability and use of technology, etc. The initial impact assessment studies, ...

  • International cooperation to support climate change mitigation and sustainable development

    This paper analyses the flexible instruments Joint Implementation (JI) and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) with regard to achieving CO2 emission reduction targets in a sustainable way. In a first step, an optimising energy and material flow model is used to elaborate emission reduction strategies for Germany. The same methodology is then applied to Indonesia in order to determine the ...

  • Why businesses must focus on climate change mitigation and adaptation

    More and more companies are recognizing and reporting on actions they’re taking to “mitigate” climate change, reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through energy efficiency, renewable power, and cleaner vehicles. Now, businesses are finding they’ll also ...

  • Changing climate changes soils

    Varied predictions for soil organic matter as climate changes The hottest months. The snowiest winters. Catastrophic floods and droughts. Climate change impacts lives across the world in drastic and unpredictable ways. This unpredictability also extends to the more subtle – yet still important – effects of climate change. For example, it is ...

  • The optimal paths of climate change mitigation and adaptation under certainty and uncertainty

    Tradeoffs between climate change mitigation and adaptation policies are explored under both certainty and uncertainty with learning using a numerical two-period decision model. We first replicate a version of the Adaptation in DICE climate model (AD-DICE) (de Bruin et al., 2009), which modifies the Dynamic Integrated model of Climate and the Economy (DICE) (Nordhaus and Boyer, 2000) to ...

  • Issues in identifying climate change adaptation within community hazard mitigation

    Increased temperatures from climate change are expected to result in sea level rise which will initially be experienced in the surge events that accompany hazards. Despite uncertainty various scenarios have been proposed that predict more severe droughts, wildfire, floods, tropical cyclones/hurricanes and severe storms. Media focus and raised public awareness of climate change risks presents an ...

  • Restoring peatlands in Russia - Preventing peat fires, mitigating climate change

    In reaction to the extensive peat fires in 2010, the Russian Government started a large-scale rewetting programme in the Moscow oblast and adjacent regions. Within the framework of Russian-German bilateral cooperation, technical assistance and international expertise is provided by the global NGO Wetlands International, the Michael Succow Foundation, Greifswald University and the Institute of ...

  • Ecological design for climate mitigation in contemporary urban living

    Evaporation is the most important hydrological function on Earth because it provides rain. As deforestation and urbanisation reduce plant cover and evapotranspiration, ever more short-wave solar radiation is converted to long-wave thermal emissions and sensible heat. Higher surface temperatures set up heat island effects, contributing to local, and ultimately, global climate change. Rainwater ...

  • Out with climate change, in with climate risk

    The impacts of the negative externalities caused by human actions and inactions towards the environment are often shrouded by the bickering debates of scientists, environmentalists, politicians and other stakeholders regarding the science of climate change. While the 'controversy' surrounding climate change continues, the realities of climate-related disasters are very true as ...
