Planning for Climate Change: 5 Ideas to prevent flooding in New York

Planning for Climate Change: 5 Ideas to prevent flooding in New York | adapting to climate change | Scoop.it
It's time to start seriously planning for climate change in the city.

 

New York City didn’t have to flood quite this badly, or, at least, it doesn’t have to again. There's no shortage of ideas out there for how the city could adapt to rising sea levels (or, we’ll just say it: climate change). A lot of them haven’t been deployed or more seriously studied because they seem too expensive or daunting.

 

But an event like Sandy quickly changes that calculus. Suddenly, some of these solutions don’t look quite as expensive as cleaning up after a hurricane...

Civil Society Organizations in Climate Change Policy Dynamics in Nepal: How Representative and Inclusive is the Process?

Abstract
Climate change is the hottest environmental issue in Nepal on which Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) are intensively involved. Recently, various international and development agencies, bi-lateral and multi-lateral development programs, and government agencies have been advocating for the involvement of CSOs on various policy forums in order to make the policy process more deliberative and democratic. Consequently, some representatives of CSOs have been participating in these policy forums and programs. ...
Key words: Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), climate change, climate change governance, climate change policy process, CSOs' involvement.

Making Communities More Resilient to Severe Climate Events After Sandy | Sustainable Cities Collective

Making Communities More Resilient to Severe Climate Events After Sandy | Sustainable Cities Collective | adapting to climate change | Scoop.it
  Sandy...

 

But Sandy has made the current situation worse. For example, the beach on New York City‘s Rockaway peninsula, which we featured here recently in a story about the community’s historic bungalows, “was almost completely washed away,” according to the article. And there has been much, much more: as we write, Sandy has killed at least 106 people in the United States. Power outages now stand at about 1.4 million homes and businesses, down from a peak of 8.5 million.

 

Even without violent storms, of course, we have a significantly warmer climate and droughts to deal with. As we reported a few months ago, over the past 50 years our average global temperature has increased at the fastest rate in recorded history. Scientists say that under current trends, average US temperatures could be 3 to 9 degrees higher by the end of the century. While the year-to-year rates of warming have varied and will probably continue to vary, perhaps even with some years of apparent leveling or even slight decreases, few dispute that the overall trend is significantly upward. This affects ocean levels and currents and wind patterns in ways that can increase the severity of storms.
