Half of Europe’s largest firms now link executive pay to climate change

By 2020, 72 percent of companies will use different warming scenarios to inform their business strategies, and 9 in 10 see business opportunities resulting from climate change.

  • Looking at climate risks and adaptation from a transnational perspective

    SEI

    Many adaptation measures focus on domestic solutions, but the risks associated with climate change do not stop at national borders. An independent regional forum could ensure national and transnational integration by coordinating responses for risk pathways. The forum would also facilitate cross-border adaptation plans and enforce policy compliance.

  • As citizen scientists, farmers can make contributions to adaptation

    CCAFS

    A new study shows how approaches using crowdsourced citizen science – in which farmers themselves are involved in scientific studies – improve and accelerate crop variety recommendations. Better farmer involvement diminishes climate risk by generating solutions that are both scalable and representative of the environments and conditions under which crops grow.
