The Working Group I contribution to the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report describes progress in understanding of the human and natural drivers of climate change1, observed climate change, climate processes and attribution, and estimates of projected future climate change. It builds upon past IPCC assessments and incorporates new findings from the past six years of research. Scientific progress since t...
Ce que disent les experts est très clair. Réunis en 2006 à Exeter, ils concluent que « La Terre se réchauffe à un rythme effarant. » Au plan mondial, les dix années de 1996 à 2005, à l’exception de 1996, sont en effet les plus chaudes jamais observées. En France, la température moyenne de l’année 2006 a été du même ordre que celle de 1994, elle même l’année la plus chaude d...
L’ONERC a précisément été créé pour informer sur les conséquences de cette dérive du climat, et pour offrir au gouvernement, aux élus et aux collectivités, acteurs du développement, les moyens d’élaboration d’une véritable politique de prévention et d’adaptation.../...

L'augmentation de la température de l'air est un des signes les plus visibles du changement climatique, en particulier durant ces dernières décennies. Si des phénomènes naturels (le volcanisme ou l'activité solaire par exemple) peuvent expliquer une partie de l'évolution des températures jusqu'à la moitié du XXème siècle, ces phénomènes ne permettent d'expliquer que très partielleme...
La réunion de lancement du projet CARIBSAT a débuté le 3 février avec une présentation officielle des activités du projet dans les locaux d'Espace-Sud à Sainte-Luce et de visites en Baie du Marin et de l'Etang des Salines de Sainte-Anne. Cette journée a été suivie de deux journées de travaux en ateliers réservés aux partenaires institutionnels du projet qui, elles, se déroulaient au ...
Climate change will affect water availability differently in Europe – likely a large decrease in Southern Europe, while an increase in the North. However, the largest increases will be felt where very few people actually live – above 60°N, whereas large populations will be affected by shortages. Indeed, if climate change can be thought of as another ‘consumer’ of water, in some countries ...
The world’s climate is changing, and it will continue to change throughout the 21st century and beyond. Rising temperatures, new precipitation patterns, and other changes are already affecting many aspects of human society and the natural world. Climate change is transforming ecosystems at extraordinary rates and scales. As each species responds to its changing environment, its interactions with...
The nations of CARICOM16 in the Caribbean together with Pacific island countries contribute less than 1% to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions (approx. 0.33%17 and 0.03%18 respectively), yet these countries are expected to be among the earliest and most impacted by climate change in the coming decades and are least able to adapt to climate change impacts. These nations’ relative isolation, sm...
The impacts of a changing climate on the Caribbean and the islands of the Pacific are increasingly being manifested in economic and financial losses. According to the World Bank, in 2007 the Caribbean suffered US $10 billion in economic losses from weather related events representing over 13 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP). While there is limited information on the economic impacts of cli...

This report to CIDA documents the achievements of the CCCDF project Adapting to Climate Change inthe Caribbean (ACCC) and provides a summary record of the ACCC project. The original goals of the project proposal are cited, as well as the modifications required as the work progressed, as agreed by the Project Management Team, which involved CARICOM and its Regional Project Implementation Unit, the ...
Caribbean journalists, as a group, are more committed to regionalism and generally more devoted to our enduring and sometimes frustrating dream of a West Indian nation than any other stakeholder segment of our society. While political issues have long tended to dominate the national and regional media landscape, increasingly new features are looming into prominence. Perspectives are changing, albe...
Small Islands are especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise and extreme events, because of their characteristics (limited size, proneness to natural hazards and external shocks, etc), and their limited adaptive capacity. These factors combined with local socio-economic and environmental conditions put the long-term sustainability of societies of Small Island at great r...
Small islands, whether located in the tropics or higher latitudes, have characteristics which make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise, and extreme events (very high confidence). This assessment confirms and strengthens previous observations reported in the IPCC Third Assessment Report (TAR) which show that characteristics such as limited size, proneness to ...
In the Caribbean region climate change involves a symbiosis of threats, risks, challenges and opportunities. The Region faces impacts of climate change, a problem to whose making it has had little to contribute. With this report, “Climate Change in the Caribbean and the Challenge of Adaptation”, we hope to contribute to the dialogue between policy-makers and the scientific community to build a...

The two dozen island nations of the Caribbean, and the 40 million people who live there, are in the front lines of vulnerability to climate change. Hotter temperatures, sea-level rise and increased hurricane intensity threaten lives, property and livelihoods throughout the Caribbean. As ocean levels rise, the smallest, low-lying islandsmay disappear under the waves. As temperatures rise and storms...
Many civil society organisations have started to work on climate change issues, both to raise awareness of the implications of climate change and build the resilience of their communities. Other organisations are involved in activities that could significantly contribute to mitigation or adaptation, such as biodiversity conservation or disaster preparedness, but are not fully aware of the potentia...
The first of the Mainstreaming Adaptation to Climate Change project’s technical components is the development of assessments of vulnerability and capacity (VCA) to adapt to climate change. This project seeks to build regional capacity to collect and analyse data, and expand the overall knowledge base on climate change impacts and associated physical, social, environmental and economic vulnerabil...
In many countries, governments are seeking advice from a wide range of disciplines on the potential impacts of climate change on the environment and their society and economy. This handbook is designed to help those conducting research supporting such advice. Underlying the research are two fundamental questions: “What does climate change mean to us?” and “What might be done about it?” Thi...
Les principaux objectifs sont : -       Sauvegarder, allonger les séries de données anciennes sur les territoires dans le contexte du changement climatique -       Développer la connaissance environnementale (climat, évènements hydroclimatiques) -       Soutenir les besoins d’information météor...
