Policy brief: Policy coherence for sustainable development in sub-Saharan Africa

Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and London School of Economics and Political Science

Cross-sectoral approaches to policy development are essential to meeting the Paris Agreement on climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which define the post-2015 development agenda. Coherent policy development requires strategic, logical assessment of interlinkages, trade-offs and opportunities within…

Building Resilience in African Cities: A Think Piece

Spires, M., Kavonic, J., Cullis, J. & Coll Besa, M.

Resilience has become a powerful term, used in multiple contexts, at multiple scales. A mutually understood definition, that all who use it adhere to, is lacking, particularly in relation to the future development of cities, and in the developing world.…

CI4T Briefing note for Kenya

Dr Neha Mittal; Dr John K. Bore; Dr Joseph Sang; Prof. Andrew Dougill

Climate change is a global phenomenon with potential effects at the local level. Future climate projections indicates that mean annual temperature for Kenya may increase by 2.0 to 3.6°C by 2100 (Figure 1), while annual total precipitation may increase by…

CI4T Briefing note for Malawi

Dr Neha Mittal - University of Leeds, UK; Dr David Mkwabisi - Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Malawi; Prof. Andrew Dougill - University of Leeds, UK

Climate change is a global phenomenon with potential effects at the local level. Our analysis of climate model projections indicates that mean annual temperature for Malawi may increase by 2.3 – 6.3°C by the 2090s (Figure 1), while rainfall projections…

Brief: Future climate projections for Malawi

UMFULA

This brief provides an overview of future climate change in Malawi, using results from the latest available climate model simulations. The UMFULA research team analysed 34 Global Climate Models (GCMs) that provide projections for Malawi to help planning and decision…

Impacts of hemispheric solar geoengineering on tropical cyclone frequency

Jones, A., Haywood, J., Dunstone, N., Emanuel, K., Hawcroft, M., Hodges, K.

Solar geoengineering refers to a range of proposed methods for counteracting global warming by artificially reducing sunlight at Earth’s surface. The most widely known solar geoengineering proposal is stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI), which has impacts analogous to those from volcanic…

Guide: How to understand and interpret global climate model results

Declan Conway, Katharine Vincent, Sam Grainger, Emma Archer van Garderen & Joanna Pardoe

Global climate models (GCMs) are the most widely used method to understand future climate change. A new guide from the Future Climate for Africa Programme explains how to interpret GCM results, in order to understand what models tell us about…

Brief: future climate projections for Tanzania

Declan Conway, Neha Mittal, Emma Archer, Joanna Pardoe, Martin Todd, Katharine Vincent and Richard Washington

The UMFULA research team analysed 34 Global Climate Models that provide projections for Tanzania to try to distil robust messages and some key trends that may help planning and decision making. The Country Climate Brief provides an overview of future…

Transdisciplinarity, co-production and co-exploration: integrating knowledge across science, policy and practice in FRACTAL

The aim of this briefing paper is to summarise the three concepts and approaches of transdisciplinarity, knowledge co-production, and co-exploration and how they are being operationalised in FRACTAL. This is a summary of the associated FRACTAL working paper, which should…

Spilling the beans: A game exploring resilience

Jessica Lee, Anna Steynor, Katinka Waagsaether and Bettina Koelle

Spilling the beans is a game that explores the term resilience as it relates to climate change. Through this interactive activity, players come to understand two contrasting interpretations of the same term. This tool is an output of the Small…
