NEC solutions for adapting to the impacts of climate change
NEC’s climate change measures
- ICT as the cornerstone of observation and monitoring for predicting and forecasting climate change
- A variety of sensor technologies—the source of information collection
- Collecting sensor data to create big data
- The analytical technology to elicit valuable information from big data
- Frameworks for ICT-based contributions
- "Adaptation" contributes to "mitigation"
Risk of death, injury, ill-health, or disrupted livelihoods in low-lying coastal zones and small island developing states and other small islands, due to storm surges, coastal flooding, and sea level rise.
Risk of severe ill-health and disrupted livelihoods for large urban populations due to inland flooding in some regions.
Systemic risks due to extreme weather events leading to breakdown of infrastructure networks and critical services such as electricity, water supply, and health and emergency services.
- 4.Death and ill health caused by heat waves which particularly affect vulnerable groups in urban areas
Risk of food insecurity and the breakdown of food systems linked to warming, drought, flooding, and precipitation variability and extremes, particularly for poorer populations in urban and rural settings.
- 6.Loss of livelihood and income in rural areas due to insufficient water resources and reduced agricultural productivity
Risk of loss of marine and coastal ecosystems, biodiversity, and the ecosystem goods, functions, and services they provide for coastal livelihoods, especially for fishing communities in the tropics and the Arctic.
Risk of loss of terrestrial and inland water ecosystems, biodiversity, and the ecosystem goods, functions, and services they provide for livelihoods.
