This paper outlines what the Paris Agreement means for Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and what needs to happen at the country level now and in the longer term to implement the Agreement. The paper focuses explicitly on the mitigation part of national contributions and discusses specific steps in response to the relevant parts of the agreed framework including a view on how these may be supported internationally.
BOSTON A new look by local researchers shows how climate change could affect food costs and global stability.
Up until now, most research into climate change and global food supplies has focused solely on crop yields — how much food is actually harvested.
But a new study of the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso — an emerging global leader in agricultural production — finds climate change is also affecting how much land people choose to farm and the number of crops they plant.
Lead author and Tufts Fletcher School assistant professor Avery Cohn joined Morning Edition to explain what the findings in Brazil mean about our current understanding of climate change.
This is the 25th anniversary of the Talloires Declaration, the pioneering commitment by university leaders to environmental sustainability that was spearheaded by Jean Mayer, the president of Tufts University at the time. Today there are over 350 signatories to this Declaration from more than 40 countries. As the world moves to implementing the Paris Agreement, universities will play a critical leadership role in developing green technologies, assessing and crafting low-cost policies to help the world make the shift to a fossil free society, and to train the next generation of leaders in the importance of sustainability in both developed and developing economies. The symposium is a university-wide examination of the role Tufts in particular and universities more generally can play on this issue, and students, faculty and the administration have shared in its planning and execution.
Welcome to Transition Studies. To prosper for very much longer on the changing Earth humankind will need to move beyond its current fossil-fueled civilization toward one that is sustained on recycled materials and renewable energy. This is not a trivial shift. It will require a major transition in all aspects of our lives.
This weblog explores the transition to a sustainable future on our finite planet. It provides links to current news, key documents from government sources and non-governmental organizations, as well as video documentaries about climate change, environmental ethics and environmental justice concerns.
The links are listed here to be used in whatever manner they may be helpful in public information campaigns, course preparation, teaching, letter-writing, lectures, class presentations, policy discussions, article writing, civic or Congressional hearings and citizen action campaigns, etc. For further information on this blog see: About this weblog. and How to use this weblog.
