Hydroeconomic models are increasingly becoming an important tool for water resources planning in river basins
As countries look to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, many see potential in their forests and farms
Human interventions to harness water resources, such as reservoirs, dams, and irrigation measures, have increased water availability for much of the global population, but at the same time, swept water scarcity problems downstream
The new study shows that these individual maps leave out key details that would enable policymakers to see if they are headed in the right direction.
The question of how to deal with dangerous climate change as being experienced and perceived by developing countries and communities has been one of the most contentious questions in international climate negotiations
Future food security depends on a variety of factors—but better soil data could substantially help improve projections of future crop yields, a new study shows.
A new study analyzes the required climate policy actions and targets in order to limit future global temperature rise to less than 1.5°C by 2100. This level is supported by more than 100 countries worldwide, including those most vulnerable to climate change, as a safer goal than the currently agreed international aim of 2°C.
