Climate Change - Recent Findings in Climate Change Described by P.J. Platts and Colleagues
2013 MAY 13 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at The Business of Global Warming -- Data detailed on Climate Change have been presented. According to news reporting originating in Washington, District of Columbia, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Broad-scale assessments of how climate change might impact mountain ecosystems, especially in areas of high biodiversity and endemism, are compromised by the lack of localised climate feedback in global circulation models. Here, we use regionally downscaled climate models to highlight how spatial variation in forecast change could impact rare plant distributions differentially across the Eastern Arc Mountains of Tanzania and Kenya, part of the Eastern Afromontane Biodiversity Hotspot. ...read more
Climate Change - Investigators at Oxford Brookes University Detail Findings in Climate Change
2013 MAY 13 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at The Business of Global Warming -- Data detailed on Climate Change have been presented. According to news originating from Oxford, United Kingdom, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "How effective are multi-stakeholder scenarios-building processes to bring diverse actors together and create a policy-making tool to support sustainable development and promote food security in the developing world under climate change? The effectiveness of a participatory scenario development process highlights the importance of 'boundary work' that links actors and organizations involved in generating knowledge on the one hand, and practitioners and policymakers who take actions based on that knowledge on the other. This study reports on the application of criteria for effective boundary work to a multi-stakeholder scenarios process in East Africa that brought together a range of regional agriculture and food systems actors. ...read more
