Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment in Mangrove-Dependent Communities of Manoka Island, Littoral Region of Cameroon

This research was conducted on Manoka Island with the aim of determining climate change vulnerability and local adaptation strategies based on the local community's perceptions and biophysical evidence. Manoka Island is experiencing irregular rainfall patterns and rising temperatures, according to the results, which indicate that the island is experiencing irregular rainfall cycles and rising temperature. Using EPR, measurements of the coastline between 1975 and 2017 show average setbacks of more than u00b13 m/year, with erosion rates varying depending on the time and location. The number of households experiencing extreme climatic conditions such as seasonal fluctuations, flood, and a rain storm was up. The most affected by climate change are survey results, housing, and fitness are the three main industries hardest affected by climate change, according to respondents. u2019's opinion, housing, and health are the three areas most affected by climate change. The reported high reliance of households on fishing for income, their overall low income diversification, and their poor accessibility to climate data were among the challenges faced by 65% of respondents' poor adaptive capacity. According to the report, households on Manoka Island are vulnerable to climate change's impacts.

Impact of Climate Change on Cereal Crops Production in Ethiopia

This research was designed to investigate the consequences of this climate change, particularly on Ethiopian cereal crops production. The study used Autoregressive Distributed Lag model approach to the co-integration with an error correction term. The estimated model substantiates the existence of a long-run correlation between cereal crops production, environmental change variables, and other explanatory variables. Both in long and short runs, precipitation has a positive and significant effect on cereal crop production, while temperature change has a drastic negative effect. In the long run, cereal crops production was positively and significantly affected by arable land, fertilizer use, and carbon dioxide pollution, as well as carbon dioxide pollution, although in the short run, labor force participation has a positive and significant effect on cereal crops production. The study findings showed that there is a long-running relationship between cereal crops production and climate change variables. The country's climate resilient Green Economy, which has a strong green economy, will need to expand.

The Initiatives of Local Government Units (LGUs) in Batangas on Climate Change

Responding to climate change's impacts, local government units in the Philippines are at the forefront of disaster response, including responding to climate change. This report was conducted to determine climate change policy in Batangas, owing to the urge to address this issue. The Disaster Risk Reduction Planning and Planning officers of three component cities and twenty-seven municipalities of Batangas were the subject of the investigation. According to the results of the survey, LGUs in Batangas adhere to the Republic Act No. 3's provisions. The Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 (Peninsula) was among the 10121, also known as the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010. At the local level, LGUs will initiate disaster risk reduction and management committees. Similarly, Batangas' cities and municipalities also enforce laws to regulate and strengthen RA 9003.

Agencies and Communities Participation in the Climate Change Programs

Naga City and the immediate municipalities in the province of Camarines Surviva are mainly composed of Naga City and its immediate municipalities. The report used the descriptive-evaluative methodology of mixed methods of study to measure community participation in the new programs and campaigns for Disaster Risk Reduction Management and Climate Change Adaptation. The study's findings revealed that community residents only participated in the DRRM and CCA activities and the difficulties encountered during its implementation were unable to access reliable and appropriate disaster risk financing and insurance, and there was no way to restore and repair the houses/buildings that were destroyed by the disaster. The adoption of community-based disaster risk reduction management will enable the community residents to be prepared with the skills and knowledge necessary to be efficient and disaster resilient.

Climate Change Awareness of the Community Officials in the Municipality of Saint Bernard, Southern Leyte: Gear towards Vulnerability and Adaption

This report was done to determine the quality of the community officials' connected to climate change's increasing awareness, including the causes and effects, as well as the route of action taken by local ordinances related to climate change. Climate change is affecting the people in the community, and most of the people in the community are currently affected by the change. Respondents to climate change are highly connected to religious belief, according to one. Community representatives' knowledge of climate change's causes and effects is plentiful, but not so much on vulnerability and adaptation.

Effectiveness of an online module: climate-change and sustainability in clinical practice

Abstract Background: Climate change has major implications for health, but healthcare facilities also play a significant role in greenhouse gas emissions. Here we investigate the success of an online module on climate change and sustainability in clinical education aimed at student learning goals that were not previously established sustainable healthcare priority learning outcomes. Methods A multi-media, online module was developed, and 3rd and 4th year medical students at Brighton and Sussex Medical School were encouraged to enroll. Students invariably requested access to more information regarding health and healthcare sustainability, as well as additional advice on how to make practical changes toward minimizing the environmental impact within a clinical setting, according to thematic analysis of white space responses.

What evidence exists on conceptual differences in climate change perceptions of smallholders? A systematic map protocol

Abstract Background The climate change is affecting small-scale populations around the world. Despite that, authors adopt alternative theories of climate change perception, which may impede comparisons of results from various studies. Hence, the research team will attempt to map the usage of the climate change perception term in literature. Methods This systematic map will conform to the CEE guidelines and conform to the Reporting Standards for Systemic Evidence format. The review team will be dependent on five electronic databases of scientific journals such as Wikipedia's Web of Science Core Collection, BASE u2014Bielefeld Academic Search Engine, Science Direct Elsevier, and PubMed. u2014 English-tested search terms only in English, with pre-tested search terms only in English. Encoding will be performed with a codebook that had been pre-elaborated for the review team. Encoding will be encoding will be carried out by the review team. Besides a list of all identified perception terms, the study team will present the results in the form of a report map with text, figures, and tables.

Can information and communication technology and institutional quality help mitigate climate change in E7 economies? An environmental Kuznets curve extension

Both on legislative and academic fronts, as shown by the figure in economic growth, the role of information sharing and technology in environmental problems stemming from heavy energy consumption and carbon dioxide pollution is important both from policy and academic fronts. The paper, published in Paris, contributes to the increasing research on CO2 emissions triggered by economic growth, institutional quality, and information and communication technologies. CO2 reductions can be found in the empirical study, economic globalization, and renewable energy use, but ICT, institutional quality, and fossil fuel all contribute to climate degradation. Both income and its square have a correlation with carbon dioxide production, although carbon dioxide sensitivity, institutional quality, ICT, and clean energy all have a one-way directional causal association with CO2 emissions.

Patterns and drivers of tree carbon stocks in Kashmir Himalayan forests: implications for climate change mitigation

Abstract Background Temperate forests are significant carbon sinks because of their high storage availability and low decomposition processes. Tree carbon storage from 143 plots distributed in three major forest species of Kashmir Himalaya's desert soil was estimated, owing to differences in ecological factors. Combined regression and Random Forest analysis were used to investigate the distribution of TC stock along ecological gradients and determine the role of driving factors on TC stocks. Results Among the three forest types, the sub-alpine forest was the largest TC sink, accounting for 228. 73 t hau22121 of carbon, followed by mixed conifer and blue pine forests. The distribution of TC stocks among the three forest species of trees differed significantly. According to a Relative carbon stock analysis, Abies pindrow and Pinus wallichiana made up 91% of TC stocks across the region. Conclusions: As they store a substantial amount of carbon in trees, the Kashmir Himalayan forests are significant carbon sinks.
