Explaining Climate Facts - 3/3 - Adaptation & Mitigation
 
08:28
Episode 3 – Adaptation and mitigation (Subtitles available in English) More information on the GreenFacts website: http://www.greenfacts.org/en/digests/climate-change.htm Climate change has already had clear impacts on natural and human systems. Over the coming decades, based on the various scenarios of emission of greenhouse gases, the range with which climate can change is quite wide, and depends on policy decisions that we take now. The risk of negative impacts results from the interaction between the climate-related hazards and the vulnerability and exposure of both natural systems and human populations. The precise level of climate change that would trigger abrupt and irreversible change remains uncertain, but the higher the global temperature gets, the more risk there is. How can we, as individuals, contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions? As individuals we can substantially lower our carbon footprint and emissions by changing our lifestyle : diet habits, reducing food waste, and modifying our consumption patterns such as our demand for mobility and modes of transportation, energy use in households, and choosing longer‐lasting products. Such changes in behaviour may improve energy efficiency by up to 20 to 30 % already in 2030 and in developed countries, by up to 50% by mid‐century. The decisions and actions that are taken now will have a long-lasting impact on the climate. At a political level or in our daily lives, we can make a difference.

"We know enough about climate change -- It's time for decisions now!" Animated film. Length: 5'42" The impacts of climate change destroy people's livelihoods and homes. They damage our infrastructure and disrupt communication and trade. Moreover, climate change is endangering development successes and the poor and marginalized are often affected the most. Even if we were to stop emissions instantly, the world would not stop warming immediately due to the amount of gases we have already emitted. That's why we must do both: reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to inevitable climate change. But how can we adapt, considering that the precise extent and form of climate change aren't known?

Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation
 
10:39
Global warming, especially due to an increase in the levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is a major cause of climate change. The GEF Small Grants Programme supports projects that address climate change mitigation, which is reducing or avoiding the emission of greenhouse gases; and climate change adaptation, which is assisting communities, especially in developing countries to become better able to cope with the negative impacts of climate change.

How Bangladesh has adapted to climate change | The Economist
 
06:06
Bangladesh is highly susceptible to climate change. Floods, cyclones and droughts are likely to increase as the Earth warms. Poor farmers are already trying to adapt. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2Hea5EK Melting glaciers, droughts, rising sea-levels - these are just some of the environmental disruptions that are likely to worsen with climate change. But dangerous climate change is not just something that might happen in the future. The earth is already warmed by almost 1 degree Celsius since the dawn of the Industrial Age - the effects are already being felt now. Vulnerable communities are trying to adapt. Bangladesh is more at risk from climate change than almost any other country. It's prone to flooding, cyclones and drought. Climate change may already be exacerbating those things. Bangladesh sits at the bottom of a Delta plane were three main rivers converge. It's straddled by the melting Himalayan glaciers in the north and the rising waters of the Bay of Bengal in the south. That makes it highly susceptible to flooding. In 2009, cyclone Aila tore through Bangladesh, uprooting trees, flattening homes and destroying crops. Along the southern coastal regions the storm left behind salty water in areas it had inundated. Fields that had once support agriculture were deemed useless. To adapt to their newly saline environment, locals have had to change their source of food production. Through a project funded by the World Bank villagers have switched to raising crabs which thrive in saltwater. Villagers rear the crabs and sell them at a local market where they're then resold by buyers who shipped them to Dakha. Adding to this problem, in some areas farmers deliberately inundate their lands with salty water so they can farm shrimp rather than crops, which is more profitable but problematic for the environment. But the salinity creates another daunting problem - it pollutes local groundwater and makes it more difficult to access safe drinking water. Climate change is worsening this effect. Cyclones are more common, river flow has diminished, and salty water from the Bay of Bengal has been reaching ever farther into the coastal lands travelling up rivers and polluting freshwater supplies that are used for drinking and irrigation. NGOs working with the Community Climate Change Project has sought to address this problem. They've provided water tanks so locals can harvest rainwater and have helped fund a desalination plant that provides clean drinking water. In the north of the country, local livelihoods have also been threatened by water. Many villagers are beholden to the rivers. When the rivers flood, the soil used for agriculture has disappeared. Not only have they lost their homes and their crops but also their means of survival. In Ranpur, villagers have learned a new farming technique that works on sandbars or chars where all the soil has been eroded. Farmers dig out holes in the char fill them with compost and plant pumpkins. Pumpkins are preserved and can be sold during the rainy season providing income throughout the year. Adaptation projects such as the ones being carried out in Bangladesh have had a huge impact on those involved but Bangladesh is not the only place where the effects of climate change are already being felt and adapted to. Rotterdam is building floating pavilions to pilot a city that rises with its sea levels. London will improve the Thames Barrier so it can better protect the city from floods. A decade ago adaptation was almost taboo in international discussions about climate change because it was believed to distract attention from the vital task of stopping global warming altogether. Now those are recognized as important. But can keep them in poor countries like Bangladesh adapt quickly enough? We don't know yet. Richer countries are better able to withstand the potential shocks that climate change will bring. If change is slow enough, it gives people more time to act and increases the odds of success. World leaders tend to talk about stopping climate change. It would help poor farmers enormously if it could only be slowed down. Daily Watch: mind-stretching short films throughout the working week.

Mitigation and Adaptation Strategies
 
01:12
Climate change and its vulnerabilities can be countered through capacity building and awareness creation among people. One of the measures people need to know are the mitigation and adaptation strategies to take in order to curb climate change. Example of mitigation strategies are initiating afforestation programs and Reforestation programs to enhance carbon sinks and increase carbon dioxide sequestration thus reducing global warming. Adaptation strategies that can be adopted is people embracing use of renewable energy such as use of electricity which is eco-friendly.

It is a fact that humans contribute to global gas emissions which in turn contributes to global warming, so the question is, what are humans doing to counteract this? Well, they have two choices, to reduce their emissions and change their lifestyle (Mitigation) or to create defences to guard areas from the certain affects that arise from global warming such as super storms and increased hazards (Adaptation). In this first part documentary, I look at what certain countries are doing in terms of Mitigation. Music: Kevin MacLeod

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Climate change mitigation consists of actions to limit the magnitude or rate of long-term climate change. Climate change mitigation generally involves reductions in human (anthropogenic) emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs). Mitigation may also be achieved by increasing the capacity of carbon sinks, e.g., through reforestation. Mitigation policies can substantially reduce the risks associated with human-induced global warming. According to the IPCC's 2014 assessment report, "Mitigation is a public good; climate change is a case of the 'tragedy of the commons'. Effective climate change mitigation will not be achieved if each agent (individual, institution or country) acts independently in its own selfish interest (see international cooperation and emissions trading), suggesting the need for collective action. Some adaptation actions, on the other hand, have characteristics of a private good as benefits of actions may accrue more directly to the individuals, regions, or countries that undertake them, at least in the short term. Nevertheless, financing such adaptive activities remains an issue, particularly for poor individuals and countries." Examples of mitigation include phasing out fossil fuels by switching to low-carbon energy sources, such as renewable and nuclear energy, and expanding forests and other "sinks" to remove greater amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Energy efficiency may also play a role, for example, through improving the insulation of buildings. Another approach to climate change mitigation is climate engineering. Most countries are parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The ultimate objective of the UNFCCC is to stabilize atmospheric concentrations of GHGs at a level that would prevent dangerous human interference of the climate system. Scientific analysis can provide information on the impacts of climate change, but deciding which impacts are dangerous requires value judgments. In 2010, Parties to the UNFCCC agreed that future global warming should be limited to below 2.0 °C (3.6 °F) relative to the pre-industrial level. With the Paris Agreement of 2015 this was confirmed, but was revised with a new target laying down "parties will do the best" to achieve warming below 1.5 °C. The current trajectory of global greenhouse gas emissions does not appear to be consistent with limiting global warming to below 1.5 or 2 °C. Other mitigation policies have been proposed, some of which are more stringent or modest than the 2 °C limit.

Mitigation to Climate Change
 
02:34
Climate change mitigation involves identifying ways to reduce heat trapping gas emissions, as well as finding ways to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Humans have many choices to reduce carbon dioxide and other emissions, and some local and state initiatives are showing some success. Still, says Tony Janetos, convening lead author of the National Climate Assessment’s Mitigation chapter, in order to meet the lower future emissions scenarios described in the report, it would require “very ambitious transformations of the energy economy.” To learn more about climate change impacts in the United States, go to NCA2014.globalchange.gov

Local Climate Change Action Planning in the Philippines
 
04:06
A video on how local governments in the Philippines can take action against climate change. *short version* The video was produced by UN-HABITAT Philippines: http://unhabitat.org.ph/, for the Department of Interior and Local Government – Local Government Academy. It was produced in the framework of the Vertical Integration and Learning for Low Emission Development (V-LED) project. To find out more about the V-LED project visit: https://localclimateaction.org The Philippines economic growth in recent years, mostly occurring in cities and urban areas, brought greater opportunities such as better public services and enhanced social equity. This growth, if not managed properly and when done unsustainably, will lead to problems like congestion, greater air pollution, and a higher demand for energy. With this urbanisation trend comes rising greenhouse gas emissions causing climate change that brings in stronger typhoons, increased rainfall and longer dry spells. If not addressed, socio-economic activities of both families and communities will be affected - making it crucial for government leaders to take adaption and mitigation actions to avoid the devastating impact of climate change. Local leaders should ensure that investments consider the environment to provide quality of life for all, now and in the future. Low emission development lowers GHG emissions and ensures climate compatible and resilient development, leading to economic, social and environmental benefits. It ensures that developments are resilient against a changing climate. Agriculture, waste, industry, forestry, transport and energy contribute to greenhouse gas emissions. These sectors are covered in the Nationally Determined Contributions or NDC. As frontline institutions Local Government Units (LGUs) can transition to action plans that support vertical integration and learning on low emission development. This dimension in planning is necessary to stimulate urban climate actions. Local governments formulate Local Climate Change Action Plans LCCAP which are integrated into or derived from long term plans like the CLUP and CDP. Using local planning processes your LGU can integrate adaptation and mitigation policies in every step of your development. With low emission development, your LGU can reduce energy costs, address local pollution and lower carbon emissions while improving local economy and creating new businesses and job opportunities. Your locality has much to gain from taking concrete actions to achieve low emission development: reduce health impacts from air pollution, sustainable energy from more secure and cheaper energy supplies; reduce poverty and enhance safety; access to climate action funding such as the green climate fund, adaption fund and people survival fund. The multiple benefits of climate action is a win-win situation for climate protection and local development. In fact there are local government units which are already demonstrating leadership for bringing down emissions. One example is the diversion of waste into compost used to grow plants and crops, and processing of garbage into alternative fuels. There are more examples from other LGUs that have also transitions towards this development model with the assistance of various programmes and using tools and resources for integrating low emission development into planning and decision making. How do you start? You start by including GHG inventory and management into your local plans. Investment programmes and budget processes with the end goal of producing sustainable solutions. Your responsibility is clear: addressing emissions needs to be an integral part of your development planning and investment programming with meaningful participation from all stakeholders, with your city and other local governments leading the way.
