Author(s): Jay Gulledge

Topics: Climate Change, Governance, Renewable Resources

Added: 01/02/2017

 

Risk perception is the key to figuring out how we are going to manage this type of risk. Climate change is very complex, nonlinear, long-term, intergenerational. It is about as difficult and uncertain a problem as you can find, and it is loaded with risk. So a risk-management framework is...

The vulnerability of populations in fragile states to weather and climate variability is typically much higher than in other countries. These countries, and their populations, face a higher exposure to climate change as a result of their geography. They are also over-reliant on climate-dependent sectors of the economy, particularly rain-fed...
