It's 44°C in Delhi today 🥵

Yesterday, bad planning + phone blooper meant I was out in the scorching heat from 12-3pm. Tried taking a bus. The only AC one that came was full to the brim (COVID super spreader anyone?). The non AC bus was emptier but so hot. I took it. (1)
No one seems to realise that in extreme heat, COVID protocols take a backseat. This is what compounding risk looks like. At 43-44°C the heat outdoors is suffocating and a mask is the last thing you want to wear. (2)
Across the subcontinent, we have a history of living with heat. There is an almost perverse romanticism around the Indian summer. We keep water cool in earthen pots, water is kept for anyone to drink from in public spaces, vendors splash water on pavements to sit on. (3)

Petit fil sur la manière dont est appréhendée l’adaptation au changement climatique dans les scénarios « Transition(s) 2050 » de l’@Ademe. Cela fait un moment que je voulais partager les qqs éléments que j’y ai picorés (sélection très subjective) (1/21)
Rappel du contexte: en novembre dernier l’@Ademe a publié ses scénarios « Transition(s) 2050 » qui dessinent 4 chemins contrastés vers la neutralité carbone en France. Chaque scénario associe les résultats de la modélisation à un récit cohérent, décliné dans chaque secteur (2/21)
Plusieurs « feuilletons » thématiques viennent éclairer des aspects spécifiques de ces débats sur les futurs possibles. Parmi ceux publiés récemment – un porte tout particulièrement sur les enjeux d’#adaptation (3/21)

Who else attended today's @OECD Development Co-operation Report 2021 launch event on shaping a just #DigitalTransformation?✋

Panelists expanded upon some of the report's key themes, including:

📅 Acting now!
⬆️ More #coordination
🖼️ Strong #frameworks
🧑‍🤝‍🧑 #InclusiveDevelopment
But we also heard a lot about #DigitalPublicGoods (#DPGs). Like... A LOT a lot.

So, what's the connection between #DPGs and a just, #inclusive #DigitalTransformation? Why have so many #donors, national #governments, and #tech experts alike expressed interest in #DPG solutions?
Well, they all agree that #DigitalTransformation is at a tipping point globally, with the divisions between wealthy and developing nations especially stark: 96% of the world's unconnected people live in developing countries.

It is 16 days since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. Today I will examine the the importance of the adaptation battle in war, and how it is playing out in Ukraine. (Image - BBC) Image
2/24 As always, a shout out to those reporting on the Russian invasion. This includes @KofmanMichael @maxseddon @IAPonomarenko @RALee85 @shashj @DanLamothe @ikhurshudyan @IanPannell @DefenceHQ @TheStudyofWar @siobhan_ogrady
among others. Please follow them.
3/24 It is impossible for the military to anticipate every eventuality in war. There are too many scenarios to accurately predict wartime events. As such, a key virtue for military organizations in war must be adaptability to unexpected events.

Le constat du 6e rapport du #GIEC sur #impacts & #adaptation est implacable. Les impacts réchauffement climatique global d’origine anthropique (RCA) sont déjà là et ils ne concernent pas que les pays « pauvres ».

(‼️SPOILER : La France aussi va devoir s’adapter).
Petit 🧵.👇
Le RCA perturbe l’ensemble des composantes du système Terre, directement ou indirectement : cycle du carbone, de l’azote, de l’eau... Les effets sont généralisés, quoi qu’inégalement répartis, et vont au-delà de ce qui est imputable à la variabilité naturelle du climat. 1/
Le RCA agit à la fois sur
➡️ la fréquence/intensité des extrêmes chauds, secs et humides
➡️ sur des dynamiques plus lentes comme l’élévation du niveau des mers, fonte des glaces et du pergélisol, etc. 2/

1/n 📢🧵: The @IPCC_CH launched their new report (WG2-AR6) this week, exploring the impacts of #climate risks, #adaptation & vulnerability. Here are some insights on the key takeaways for #India.🇮🇳🌏♻️
#ClimateReport #IPCC #IPCCReport
🔗Read Asia Ch. 10 ➡️ Image
2/n #India🇮🇳 is at risk of multiple #climaticrisks, many of which are accelerating in frequency & intensity. Rising temp.🌡️are likely to cause severe heat stress in summer, esp. in cities where temp.🌡️can be more than 2℃ warmer than the surroundings due to heat island effects. Image
3/n Extreme rainfall events are projected to lead to more frequent #flooding in settlements near vulnerable rivers & flood risks across the country will become more frequent & severe. Higher than 🌏 mean sea level rise for #Asia’s coasts exposes 🇮🇳’s large coastal population. Image

This is going to be a thread about the #COVIDRecovery #BuildBackBetter #RecoveryPlan and how it's been a total failure through the lens of #emissions #climatechange and #adaptation. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency #EconomicRecovery 🧵 1/x
I started following this in December 2020, when this paper was released:

"If fiscal packages are invested in carbon-intensive technologies and traditional fossil fuel-based infrastructure, this will bring huge lock-in effects on emissions."… 2/x
"Five-year emissions will increase by 15.6% (22.0 Gt) versus decreases of 4.7% (6.6 Gt), if the fiscal packages were invested in clean energy and advanced technologies (scenario SDS)." 3/x

Recently, @IPCC_CH released a new report worked by the WGII: Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability. This is the second part of its three-part, Sixth Assessment Report (AR6).
Check out the full report at:

Read the full thread.
#IPCC is the #UN’s #ClimateScience body, made up of hundreds of the world’s top climate scientists. They issue a set of major assessment reports every few years, in which they review thousands of peer-reviewed papers to reach a conclusion on the current state of the climate.
This #AR6 report states the science that explains the dangerous position we are in. We are already facing devastating #ClimateImpacts including heat waves, changes in rainfall, extreme weather patterns, and many social and economic crises. The costs have worsened over the years.

The IPCC Climate Change 2022: Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability was released today. I'm going to go through the executive summary and post some "highlights". #IPCC #IPCCReport… 2/
- #Dengue risk will increase with longer seasons and a wider geographic distribution in #Asia, #Europe, Central and South America and sub-Saharan #Africa, potentially putting additional billions of people at risk by the end of the century
- A billion people projected to be at risk from coastal-specific climate hazards in the mid-term under all scenarios, including in Small Islands. #ClimateCrisis #ClimateEmergency

The latest #IPCC report finds that many effects of #climatechange are now irreversible. Whilst contributing least to the problem, the world’s poorest populations are most at risk.

#Afghanistan is already feeling the devastating effects of climate losses and damages.

The current humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan has been made far worse by a devastating drought in 2021 - the worst seen in the country for almost 3 decades - and many other climate-related disasters that have plagued the country in recent years.
Keeping the global rise in temperatures to 1.5 degrees has never been more important. However, as some impacts of the #climatecrisis are now irreversible, #adaptation is also more vital than ever before.

J-7 pour l’AR6 II du #GIEC sur impacts/adaptation. Un nouveau plan national d’adaptation (PNACC) est aussi attendu avec la Stratégie française Énergie-climat (SFEC). En attendant, un dernier 🧵 sur #adaptation & #resilience (pensez aussi au rapport 2021 @hc_climat). C'est parti!
#resilience, #adaptation, #vulnerabilité sont toujours discutées dans le champ scientifique. Mais comment les rendre opérationnelles (et opératoire) ? 1/

La semaine dernière, j’ai parlé de #risque #adaptation #vulnérabilité. Pour prolonger, le webinaire du @hc_climat avec @valmasdel, Solange Martin :…

On poursuit en s’attaquant à un gros morceau. # Résilience. C’est parti.🧵⬇️ 1/27
En français, « résilience » est un néologisme. Résilier un contrat, c’est d’ailleurs l’exact contraire de la résilience. Le mot, déjà utilisé en anglais, apparaît en 1921 en physique. C’est l’expérience du mouton de Charpy, qui mesure la résistance au choc d’un matériau. 2/
Le terme est repris en psychologie à propos des enfants, puis des survivants des camps de concentration. Puis, il circule dans plusieurs champs disciplinaires et domaines opérationnels. D’où la multiplicité des définitions décrite par le @CeremaCom.⬇️ 3/

Le réchauffement climatique? On s'adaptera, on l'a toujours fait.
Oui mais, en réalité, si "les sociétés humaines ont déjà fait face par le passé à la variabilité naturelle du #climat", rappelle @valmasdel, ce fut "souvent au prix de pertes humaines et économiques".
Surtout, "l'ampleur et la vitesse des évolutions actuelles sont inédites", rappelle-t-elle dans le webinaire du @hc_climat sur l'#adaptation aux conséquences du réchauffement climatique qui a eu lieu aujourd'hui avec @MagaliReghezza et Solange Martin
On y parle aussi de différentes formes d'#adaptation, incrémentale ou structurelle notamment (ex ci-dessous en cas de vague de chaleur et sècheresse extrême) qui peuvent être mises en oeuvre.

En prévision du webinaire du @hc_climat sur l’#adaptation de vendredi 11/02 et des rapports des groupes II & III GIEC (ils arrivent !), je vous propose plusieurs 🧵 sur les notions de risque, adaptation, vulnérabilité et résilience. C'est parti (1/30) ⬇️
En 2021, selon les chiffres des grands réassureurs mondiaux, le coût des catastrophes a augmenté de 24% et s’élève à 221 milliards d’euros. Ces catastrophes résultent de la réalisation d’un risque. 2/… Image
L’évaluation du risque repose sur le fait que si on connaît le temps de retour moyen d’un événement et la valeur des éléments exposés, alors on peut calculer une espérance mathématique de dommage. 3/ Image

Happy to announce that our article "Temperature effects on crop yields in heat index #insurance" with @tobi_dal and @RobertFinger1 is now online and #openaccess in @_Food_Policy. A short 🧵about the article that is available here:…
#Heat drives crop yield volatility. Index #insurance can reduce the resulting financial losses suffered by farmers and support #adaptation to #climatechange. Yet, there remains a protection gap for heat risks in most of European #agriculture. (1/🧵)
We introduce a payout function into heat (weather) index insurance design that integrates a cutting-edge method to empirically estimate nonlinear temperature effects on crop yields. We apply and evaluate this novel function for German winter wheat and rapeseed producers. (2/🧵)
