|New Project on Adaptation to Climate Change in Cities||
RAMSES (Reconciling Adaptation, Mitigation and Sustainable Development for Cities) is a €5m FP7 research programme that aims to develop methods, tools and case studies to design strategies, quantify costs and evaluate the impacts of adaptation to climate change in cities.
|Green Deal must ‘sell’ energy efficiency as way of improving domestic life – or take up won’t happen||
Call for clearer ‘value proposition’ ahead of Monday launch - as findings reveal no great appetite for energy efficiency
|Climate Change and Development Short Course at UEA||
The purpose of this short course, running during September 2013, is to equip non-specialists with a broad understanding of what climate change may mean for low-income populations.
|Low carbon energy controversies||
This new book from Routledge brings together ten years of research led by the Tyndall Centre at Manchester University that explores the complex nature of disputes about balancing local environmental protection and the need for low carbon energy.
|Aviation and shipping privileged – again?||
The ongoing exclusion of aviation and shipping emissions from UK carbon budgets further tests the veracity of the Coalition’s claim to be the “greenest government ever” claim the authors of this new Tyndall Centre Briefing Note.
|Shipping and carbon emissions special issue||
Carbon Management has published a focus on Shipping and carbon emissions: a focus on mitigation. It is guest co-edited by Alice Bows of the Sustainable Consumption Institute and Tyndall Centre Manchester and features contributions led by Kevin Anderson, Ruth Wood and Sarah Mander.
|Tyndall Manchester on Shale Gas||
The Tyndall Centre at the University of Manchester has analysed the contribution of UK shale gas expoitation for emissions and the UK’s climate change targets, in reports commissioned by The Cooperative.
|Tyndall researchers produce first comparative analysis of policy dismantling in different policy fields||
Policy dismantling is a distinctive form of policy change, which involves the cutting, reduction, diminution or complete removal of existing policies. The perceived need to dismantle existing policies normally acquires particular poignancy during periods of acute economic austerity.
|Record high for global carbon emissions||
Global carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions are set to rise again in 2012, reaching a record high of 35.6 billion tonnes - according to new figures from the Global Carbon Project, co-led by researchers from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
|Tyndall authors win Lloyds of London Science of Risk Prize||
A study carried out by scientists from the Tyndall Centre, and today awarded the 2012 Lloyds Science of Risk prize for Climate Change research, shows how the benefits of protecting our coastline from erosion must be balanced against the impacts of coastal flooding.
|Paralysis by analysis should not delay decisions on climate change||
Uncertainty about how much the climate is changing is not a reason to delay preparing for the harmful impacts of climate change, says Professor Jim Hall of the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford, writing today with senior colleagues in Nature Climate Change.
