This study evaluates the economic benefits of the technology use to the farm sector in the Red River of the North Basin (RRB). As part of the Hudson Bay drainage system in North America, the RRB has been subject to Spring River flooding in the past century.
An integrated Toolbox for a climate-proof management of water resources through sustainable land-use management. Released the toolbox designed and developed in the framework of the Interreg Central Europe TEACHER-CE project. The CMCC is partner of the project.

In the Dry Corridor of Central America, persistent drought—interrupted by violent storms that do further damage to crops—is driving farmers from land they’ve cultivated for generations.
Cover and title of publication
This perspective paper discusses the main challenges and enablers of climate-resilient infrastructure and identifies how available roadmaps, tools and emerging digital technologies can be placed at the service of a safer world.

A novel approach to weather forecasting uses convolutional neural networks to generate exceptionally fast global forecasts based on past weather data.
In 2021, extreme flooding from rain affected residents across the United States, causing property damage and loss of life. Preparing for and responding to climate change is a priority for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
While artificial intelligence and machine learning have the potential to facilitate faster and better anticipatory humanitarian action, they can pose unforeseen challenges if left unregulated and unchecked.
The technology and tools exist to make most climate shocks predictable and to strengthen our ability to prepare for and respond to them. However, these remain underutilised by governments and the international community. The case for investing in and supporting governments’ access to the tech solutions that can transform disaster preparedness and response needs to be clearly made.
This paper focuses on the barriers governments face in accessing technologies that support effective disaster-risk management; with recommendations for incorporating the right technology into disaster-management systems.
By 2030, climate crises will push more than 130 million people into poverty, doubling the current figure of those requiring emergency aid to 200 million a year. The cost of adapting to the impacts of climate change will be $140–$300 billion per year by 2030 and $280–$500 billion per year by 2050.
