This study analyzed temporal changes in snow avalanches and examined the impacts of climate change on snow avalanches under continental snow climate conditions along the transportation corridor in the Tianshan mountains.
This paper uses remote sensing data on forest fires and remaining tree cover to estimate the effectiveness of a project targeted at reducing fire incidences in twelve protected forests in arid Burkina Faso.
This paper suggests that economic fragility and resilience against climate-related natural shocks are shaped by the elasticity of input substitution in resource-intensive sectors, the trade regime, and the property rights regime in nature-based assets.
The objective of the assessment is to develop a model-based estimate of the direct physical damages to residential buildings (houses) and non-residential buildings caused by the event, and to evaluate the spatial distribution of damages.
