Climate Change Mitigation

2020-8-3Mitigating climate change is about reducing the release of greenhouse gas emissions that are warming our planet Mitigation strategies include retrofitting buildings to make them more energy efficient adopting renewable energy sources like solar wind and small hydro helping cities develop more sustainable transport such as bus rapid transit electric vehicles and biofuels and promoting

MITIGATING CLIMATE CHANGE IMPACTS ON FOOD

2019-11-26climate change Failure to mitigate and adapt to climate change will lead to dramatic falls in fishery productivity with negative consequences for both people and the environment However a concerted and adaptive response to climate change can lead to more abundant marine resources and increased profits WWF's vision is to ensure the long-

Mitigation and adaptation to climate change

2020-8-2When it comes to tackling climate change to prevent the impacts it causes in the different systems of the planet the human being applies two types of measures: mitigation and adaptation Mitigation measures are those actions that are taken to reduce and curb greenhouse gas emissions while adaptation measures are based on reducing vulnerability to the effects of climate change

Aquaculture Climate Change

Climate change is an immediate and future threat to food security globally The consequences for fisheries and agriculture production potential are well studied yet the possible outcomes for aquaculture – one of the fastest growing food sectors on the planet – remains a major gap in scientific understanding

Can Seaweed Farming Play a Role in Climate Change

2017-4-14Here we outline the potential to develop seaweed Blue Carbon Farming as a strategy for climate change mitigation and adaptation We do so by first assessing the potential based on wild and aquaculture production and the pathways for this production to be managed as to result in avoidance of CO2 emissions while possibly generating climate

Roadmap to Blue Carbon opportunities in the

The SeyCCAT's grant provides key funds to better understand marine assets (i e Blue Carbon systems) that directly mitigate climate change and reduce ocean risks like coastal erosion and sea level rise (as highlighted in the Seychelles' Blue Economy roadmap strategic priority #3)

What role can afforestation play in addressing climate

2019-9-19Growth is 30% between the low and medium estimates 8 4 billion people in 2100 We conclude that afforestation "would be the most effective method to combat climate change" is likely not true There are many approaches that all accomplish mitigating climate change of which afforestation is a very important way to tackle the climate crisis
