Perspectives on Indigenous well-being and climate change adaptation

  • Version of Record online: 11 January 2024
Description unavailable

Cooking a traditional pork meal for a mortuary celebration in Budibudi (Papua New Guinea). Cultural practices that determine the well-being of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities are threatened by climate change. Adaptation actions need to take local psycho-cultural elements in consideration to ensure the well-being of Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLC) is maintained.

Challenges in the attribution of river flood events

  • Version of Record online: 26 December 2023
Description unavailable

Drivers of river floods change through time. Global warming, and associated changes in temperature and precipitation, often overlap with changes in the hydrology, such as land-cover change, construction of levees and large-scale irrigation. This poses a special challenge to the attribution of flood events.

Varieties of approaches to constructing physical climate storylines: A review

  • Version of Record online: 28 November 2023
Description unavailable

Causal chain that represents the unfolding of a physical trajectory of the climate system, or a weather or climate event at different spatiotemporal scales. The two arrows at the top of the figure represent the starting point for problem setting, which usually starts from the extreme event or impact and then investigates its climatic context (top) and the flow of data along the modeling chain (bottom). Blue ovals show the links of the causal chain that are usually explicitly represented in PCS and light blue oval (natural variability) is what is conditionalized on. Blue arrows represent the direction of causation. Gray ovals represent different sources of evidence used to substantiate different links of the causal chain. GCM is “Global Climate Model,” RCM is “Regional Climate Model,” and NWP is “Numerical Weather Prediction model.” Lines associated with (a), (b), (c), and (d) indicate which components of the causal chain are taken into consideration for different varieties of PCS development described in the main text.

Turning climate justice into practice? Channeling loss and damage funding through national social protection systems in climate-vulnerable countries

  • Version of Record online: 07 November 2023
Description unavailable

The interconnectedness between social protection (SP), climate resilience, and loss and damage. The first three functions of SP, if combined, can eventually lead to the fourth transformative function (referred to as “3P + T”) if SP systems are rooted in a rights-based fundament and are designed to address systemic inequality and promote social equity, empowerment, and the enjoyment of social, political, and economic rights.
