Climate Action Planning is the most comprehensive book on the state of the art, science, and practice of local climate action planning. It should be a first stop for any local government interested in addressing climate change. Our mission is to help the world reach “Drawdown”— the point in the future when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline, thereby stopping stopping catastrophic climate change — as quickly, safely, and equitably as possible.

Climate Change makes clear what is well-established and where understanding is still developing. It echoes and builds upon the long history of climate-related work from both national academies, as well as on the newest climate-change assessment from the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

This conclusion is based on a substantial array of scientific evidence, including recent work, and is consistent with the conclusions of the IPCC’s Fourth Assessment Report (IPCC, a-d), recent assessments by the USGCRP (e.g., USGRP, a), and other recent assessments of the state of scientific knowledge on climate change. Both our.   According to Fig. , the proposed framework to assess climate change vulnerabilities on agriculture includes two main components. Vulnerability assessment at the community level (commune/village): This is to identify the vulnerabilities at the community level and then propose adaptation measures to climate change impacts and sea level rise.. Community awareness and capacity on climate.
