Economic Analysis of Climate Change Adaptation

The Philippines is particularly vulnerable to climate change, as its extensive coastline is a key environmental and economic resource. Conserving ecosystems and protecting livelihoods depends to a large extent on stakeholders’ ability to predict the impact of climate change and on communities’ capacity to adapt. This study is an effort to better understand the risks associated with climate change, and assess adaptation and policy options to address these risks more effectively.

Exploratory analysis of resource demand and the environmental footprint of future aquaculture development using Life Cycle Assessment

Increases in fish demand in the coming decades are projected to be largely met by growth of aquaculture. However, increased aquaculture production is linked to higher demand for natural resources and energy as well as emissions to the environment.

The road to recovery after Typhoon Haiyan

WorldFish and the CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic Agricultural Systems are helping the coastal communities of the Philippines to recover their livelihoods in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.
 

CGIAR Research Program on climate change, agriculture and food security

Climate change is an unprecedented threat to the food security of hundreds of millions of people. Climate change affects agriculture and food security, and likewise, agriculture and natural resource management affect the climate system.

Reconceptualising adaptation to climate change as part of pathways of change and response

The need to adapt to climate change is now widely recognised as evidence of its impacts on social and natural systems grows and greenhouse gas emissions continue unabated.

Climate, Change, Water Management and Aquaculture in Malawi

The increasing variability of climate is a challenge for small-scale farmers in Chingale, Malawi. Changing weather patterns mean that farmers are unable to fully prepare their cropping calendars for optimal harvests, and irregular rainfall is causing unpredictable crop yields. With small land sizes of less than 0.2 hectares, small-scale farmers need to make full use of their available land in order to have enough food for their families and surplus for sale. To adapt to these challenges, farmers are integrating fish farming and crop irrigation to their farming practices, which are providing extra food and income.
