CCAITN takes stock of the available data and analysis of climate change impacts on international transport networks; collects information on all relevant planning, . that run a higher risk of being impacted, are particularly vulnerable, or are already experiencing the effects of climate change on their transport networks
Collect and analyze existing, readily available monitoring results information, etc. Assess risks of climate change impacts using existing information (identify high-risk events and areas). Develop from B-track steps to the full-scale A-track steps. Step 1: Share knowledge and approaches to adaptation, and examine..
The patterns of variation of abiotic factors determine a climate and thus climatic adaptation. There are many different climates around the world, each with its unique patterns. Because of this, the manner of climatic adaptation shows large differences between the climates. A subarctic climate..
adapting Australia to a variable and changing climate, providing high-level policy guidance designed for use by policy makers at Commonwealth and State levels. This Guidance Brief deals with adapting Australia's agriculture to climate change, especially broadacre farming, and is based mainly, but not exclusively,..
Mould; condensation; decreased thermal performance of building. Decreased humidity. Higher risk of fire. Figure 2: Potential effects of climate change on buildings. It is important to bear in mind that small increases in temperature above normal levels can increase hazards dramatically, including the intensity of cyclone wind

Aug 28, 2009 . The confidence that something is going to happen is exceedingly high, said Stephen Schneider, Ph.D., professor of biology and interdisciplinary environmental studies at Stanford University and a leading proponent of climate change adaptation. Where it gets a bit more speculative is with questions like..
