CLIMATE
CHANGE
SIGNS OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Global Warming
La Niña & El Niño Phenomena
Rise in Sea Level
Stronger Typhoons
Melting Ice Caps
Climate Change
is the most alarming phenomenon
in the world today.
What is Climate Change?
The significant and lasting change in weather patterns
Refers to change in the state of the climate that can be identified by changes in the mean and/or the variability of its properties that persist for an extended period of time

Any change in climate over time whether due to natural variability or as a result of human activity
- Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change 2007 Report


Refers to change in climate that is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of global atmosphere that is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable periods of time

- United Nations Framework on Climate Change



Extreme Weather Patterns
Warm Winters in Canada
Hurricane Katrina & Sandy
Snow in Rome
Snow in Northern Africa
Flooding in Thailand
"Ondoy" in the Philippines
CLIMATE CHANGE
It cannot be stopped now.
But it can be slowed down.

REGULATORY RESPONSE TO
"HEAT-TRAPPING GASES"
CALLED
GREENHOUSE GASES

Temperature & CO2 Connection
WORLD RISK INDEX: INDICATORS
Exposure
: earthquakes, storms, floods and sea level rise
Susceptibility
: public infrastructure, housing conditions, nutrition and general economic framework
Coping capacities
: governance, disaster preparedness & early warning, medical services, social and economic security
Adaptive capacities
: future natural events & climate change

PURPOSE OF GHG INVENTORY
“You can only manage what you
can measure.” - Peter Drucker

HOW or HOW MUCH
EMISSIONS TO
REDUCE?
HOW MUCH CARBON
SINKS TO ENHANCE?
ADAPTATION
Climate change is here to stay for decades
Build resilience: changes in lifestyles
Urban planning: incorporate climate change in infrastructure development
BEST PRACTICES OF ADAPTATION
Netherlands: living with water
England (Thames Barrier)
Bangladesh (Agricultural adaptation)
Dumangas, Iloilo (Climate Field School)
Venice, Italy
Requires planning at both the local and national levels
Risk management and disaster preparedness

Questions:
What are the types of climate change and impact expected?
To what extent is system likely to be affected?
To what extent can system adapt to different scenarios of climate change?
Which areas are most vulnerable (“hot spots”?)
