Information on the European Commission on Climate Change

The European Commission on Climate Change has published a report on its website, COP 26. It was released in March of this year. The purpose of the report was to gain comment on how effective adaptation strategies are in the field of global warming. The commission divides the report into four main chapters and also includes a write up.

The first chapter addresses the issues with information and education. The information refers to the preparation of an information package covering the topics of adaptation and research. It is hoped that the report will encourage member states to adopt more effective policies in dealing with climate change and that the political response measures will be robust enough to protect the environment. It is important to remember that the political response measures are not enforceable.

The second chapter looks at the problems of adaptation in detail. The policy makers are then presented with the need for realistic and comprehensive assessments in order to develop adequate adaptation strategies. There is need for national authorities to communicate their objectives clearly. The European Union is part of the global environmental organization and therefore must fulfil certain targets concerning the reduction of greenhouse gases. It is hoped that the creation of a European monitoring system can contribute to the effectiveness of the policy makers in achieving these targets.

The third chapter looks at the impact of adaptation policy on the global warming. In addition, there is an issue of funding which has been highlighted by the increasing cost of renewable energy in some countries. Furthermore, there is a need to review the legal provisions in force in order to ensure that the legal framework does not impede or weaken the ability of the adaptation strategy. This could lead to increased conflicts over energy between member states.

The forth chapter addresses the social and economic impacts of climate change. This includes a description of the differences in the quality of life across regions as well as an assessment of the likely effect of adaptation policies on the countries involved. The authors conclude that it is necessary to increase the ambition of policy makers and review their expectations. They also call for more accurate and reliable estimates of greenhouse gas emissions as well as adaptation possibilities and provide guidelines on what should be included in such a framework.

The European Commission on Climate Change’s webpage on adaptation shows a few useful links. There are also several reports available which provide further information on adaptation. For an overview and some ideas about the report, see the Climactic Adaptation Strategies 2021. For a full list of strategies and sources of information, see the Conservation Policy website.


Climate Targets For the Future – A Healthy and Clean Environment for All!

The Paris Agreement made forward the efforts of world leaders to set ambitious climate targets and move our country towards renewable sources of energy. The objectives go to lowering greenhouse gas emissions, stabilizing the environment, and developing green technologies for the future. The targets were included in the pre Kyoto Protocol agreement, which was negotiated and signed in 1997. The Kyoto Protocol set greenhouse gas emission reduction as one of the steps towards fulfilling the Paris Agreement’s goals.

Climate targets 2030

Among the major contributors to climate change are carbon dioxide released from the burning of fossil fuels. Greenhouse gases, or carbon dioxide, trap heat in the atmosphere, so that the planet is forced to go through climate changes known as climate change. Without intervention, it is estimated that by the end of this century, global temperature will rise by approximately two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). The Paris Agreement marks a significant step forward in the fight against climate change. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution around 18 hurdler, industrialization has expanded the scope of carbon emissions.

The Paris Agreement seeks to decrease the size of the carbon dioxide emissions of the world’s largest contributors to climate change. At the current rate of increase, this will occur at the rate of more than twelve billion tons of carbon dioxide added to the atmosphere in the next twenty years. The primary goal of these targets is to limit greenhouse gas emissions and prevent global warming. The targets also call for a reduction of carbon emissions to make up for the increase in greenhouse gas emissions. These national greenhouse gas emissions should come down to less than 2021 levels by the year 2030.

The Paris Agreement also promises to phase out fossil fuel use by the world’s most developed countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The United States is one of the world’s biggest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions and is responsible for about 18% of the carbon dioxide emissions in the atmosphere. By the year 2030, the United States should have largely closed its greenhouse gas emissions. Developing nations like India and China are encouraged to join the process since the world cannot keep using non-renewable resources.

It is hoped that by reducing carbon emissions the world will be able to reduce its dependency on fossil fuels. This in turn will help the economy to recover from recession. The increased use of renewable sources of energy including geothermal and solar power can potentially create millions of jobs.

The key to achieving these ambitious targets is to start at the national level. Each nation must commit itself to the Paris Agreement and each country must set its own individual target on reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In order for these targets to be achieved, the global community will need to act quickly and we call on all developed nations to join the process. The time is now to make our voice heard, act now for a healthy future for us all. Let’s make our world green, let’s make our future green.

Climate change and climate adaptation are the two main focuses of efforts being made by government, civil society and businesses to reduce and adapt to climate change. A lot of work has been done in the past decade on climate change adaptation. The focus areas have been the physical environment, policies and programs, infrastructure development, adaptation services and research. Governments around the world are taking on a wide range of issues relating to climate change adaptation and mitigation. The recent developments have seen the conveniences of the average person becoming a part of the solution for climate change adaptation and mitigation.

Adaptation strategies involve adapting to climate change through collective efforts with support from government, society and business. These efforts are often designed to keep some portion of the current biodiversity while attempting to reduce emissions. Common adaptation strategies include carbon absorption, shifting to renewable energy sources, preserving tropical forests and relocating communities. Adaptation is a collective endeavor. While there are many individual efforts to decrease emissions and save on electricity, adaptation strategies tend to be collective. The use of mass public steps is increasingly common.

One of the most successful adaptation strategies in recent times has been the development and implementation of low carbon technology. Countries such as France, UK and USA have national programs that have combined adaptation with research and deployment of low carbon technology. Low carbon technology generally refers to a technology that traps heat or cool air using a process called “ensurement”. This low emissions technology has been proven to work in many cases. The major benefit to adaptation strategies is that they reduce greenhouse gas emissions while simultaneously improving the environment.

Policies and programs designed for adaptation also deal with mitigation. Mitigation deals with the change in the environment that is caused by climate change. These include adaptation strategies as well as changes in infrastructure that will need to be adapted to climate change. Reduction in greenhouse gases may not necessarily be complete in some regions, so adaptation measures should also deal with how to mitigate climate change.

In terms of the types of positions available in the field of ecology, those working in the climate change field are particularly well-represented. There are numerous concentrations within this field. One such concentration is the impact of climate change on ecosystems. This involves the monitoring, assessment and evaluation of the existing ecosystems. It also involves the study of new habitats, ecosystems and species as a result of climate change and its impact.

Careers within this field are also diverse. Those working in it deal with evaluating, monitoring, and adapting to different climates. They may also help define and protect ecosystems, help improve the efficiency of ecosystems, improve water quality and introduce or monitor new species.
