Natural hazards: towards an integrated approach

How do people make decisions in the context of climate change risks and environmental conflicts? How can we measure their impacts? A clearer system of classification of disasters, an improvement of loss accounting mechanisms and a refocusing on extensive forms of risk can offer new possibilities for developing a more coherent path towards disaster risk reduction and sustainable development

Forests and land use from Tropics to Siberia: how they affect temperature

Trees and forests can make the difference. They can affect temperature regionally in many areas of the world: it’s a matter of soil, color of land (darker or lighter), water availability, snow cover. The results of a study focused on how land cover changes impact on regional temperatures and precipitation, realized by CMCC researchers working in an international team […]
