Global estimates of the impact of a collapse of the West Antartica ice sheet: an application of fund.

understood in practise, including the likely impacts of such a rise. This paper explores for the first time the global impacts of extreme sea-level rise, triggered by a hypothetical collapse of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS). As the potential contributions remain uncertain, a wide range of scenarios are explored: WAIS contributions to sea-level rise of between 0.5m/century up to 5m/century.

Costing Climate Impacts and Adaptation. A Canadian Study on Coastal Zones.

The two great threats to coastal zones are sea-level rise and larger and more-frequent storm surges, which can destroy property, erode coastal land, salinate aquifers, and permanently flood low-lying areas. A seminal 1998 study of the risk posed by sea-level rise found that one-third of all Canadian coastline has a moderate or high level of sensitivity, yet very little research exists quantifying the likely economic impacts.

Synthesis report on the National Economic, Environment and Development Study (NEEDS) for Climate Change Project

This document synthesizes the information contained in the reports of 10 of the countries that participated in the National Economic, Environment and Development Study (NEEDS) for climate change project.

National Economic & Environmental Development Study (NEEDS) Pakistan.

The main objectives of the National Economic, Environment and Development Study (NEEDS) are to support the participating countries in: (1) Selecting key sectors for climate change mitigation and adaptation measures, on the basis of priorities identified in the national communications and in national development plans; (2) Assessing the financing required and received to implement mitigation and adaptation measures in the key sectors selected in 1.

National Economic Environment Development Studies

The main objectives of the National Economic, Environment and Development Study (NEEDS) are to support the participating countries in: (1) Selecting key sectors for climate change mitigation and adaptation measures, on the basis of priorities identified in the national communications and in national development plans; (2) Assessing the financing required and received to implement mitigation and adaptation measures in the key sectors selected in 1.

National Environmental, Economic and Development Study (NEEDS) for Climate Change: Ghana Country Report.

The main objectives of the National Economic, Environment and Development Study (NEEDS) are to support the participating countries in: (1) Selecting key sectors for climate change mitigation and adaptation measures, on the basis of priorities identified in the national communications and in national development plans; (2) Assessing the financing required and received to implement mitigation and adaptation measures in the key sectors selected in 1.

Egypt National Environmental, Economic and Development Study (NEEDS) for Climate Change

relevant documents in this regard, such as the First National Environmental Action Plan (NEAP), the Support for National Action Plan (SNAP). Currently, Egypt has just finished the "Second National Communication” (SNC) to the UNFCCC. In this respect, this report is a study of the national environmental, economic and development aspects of climate change. It is primarily based on the outputs of the SNC and the related background papers, with the economic analysis specifically carried out here in order to address the associated financial needs.

WGII AR5 Chapter 23: Europe.

Describe different impacts and adaptation costs, benefits for sectors in Europe.

Managing the land in a changing climate

This report is part of a series of annual progress reports by the Adaptation Sub-Committee to assess how the country is preparing for the major risks and opportunities from climate change. Together these reports will provide the baseline evidence for the Committee’s statutory report to Parliament on preparedness due in 2015.
