Climate Change and its Humanitarian Impacts. Erway Morinière, Lezlie C; Taylor, Richard ; Hamza, Mohamed ; Downing, Tom. Oxford; Stockholm Environment Institute; Nov. 2009. 74 p. tab, graf.
This report aims to synthesize the wealth of climate information specifically linked to consequences across the globe that requires the attention of the humanitarian community. To do so, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) employs two main methods. First, an electronic survey was organized to capture the main differences in understanding and requirements between two sectors: those generating climate information and those using it to humanitarian ends. Secondly, over 200 peer-reviewed documents and gray literature were carefully canvassed and their findings mapped in a manner that may be useful to humanitarian actors, while highlighting ways the climate communities may put science to the service of society.
