Test and evaluation of a climate risk assessment procedure- Case study: The Norwegian hydro power company SFE

Kristin Linnerud (Report;2009:03)

Climate change: Scientific background and process

Knut H. Alfsen, Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Hans Martin Seip, Tora Skodvin (Report;2000:01)

The paper gives a brief description of natural and man-made forces behind climate change and outlines climate variations in the past together with a brief synopsis likely future impacts of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases. The paper also gives a briefing on the background, organisation an...

A macroeconomic assessment of impacts and adaptation to climate change in Europe

Hans Asbjørn Aaheim, Helene Amundsen, Therese Dokken, Torgeir Ericson, Taoyuan Wei (Report;2009:06)

Perceptions of ecological migration in Inner Mongolia, China: summary of fieldwork and relevance for climate adaptation

Jennifer Joy West (Report;2009:05)

A review of country studies on climate change

Ted Hanisch, Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Ivar S. A. Isaksen, Rolf Selrod, Jon Strand, Asbjørn Torvanger (Report;1993:01)

Country studies are important instruments for determining national climate policies and adding to the global knowledge on climate issues. They are, however, also the basis for examining the obligations of the Parties under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC), and for dev...

Economic impacts of climate change on tuna fisheries in Fiji Islands and Kiribati

Hans Asbjørn Aaheim, Linda Sygna (Report;2000:04)

This paper discusses the possible economic consequences of a change in the tuna fisheries in the Pacific Ocean resulting from climate change. On the background of Lehodey's (2000) study of potential changes in the tuna fisheries, we survey possible economic impacts in terms of quantities and values...

Is information enough? User responses to seasonal climate forecasts in Southern Africa

Karen O'Brien, Linda Sygna, Lars Otto Næss, Robert Kingamkono, Ben Hochobeb (Report;2000:03)

Since the mid-1980s, long-lead climate forecasts have been developed and used to predict the onset of El Niño events and their impact on climate variability. Advances in the observational and theoretical understanding of El Niño and the Southern Oscillation (ENSO) have contributed to improved season...

Responses in tropospheric O3, OH and CH4 to changed emissions of important trace gases

Jan S. Fuglestvedt, Terje K. Berntsen, Ivar S. A. Isaksen (Report;1993:04)

A two-dimensional (altitude vs. latitude) photochemical/transport model of the global troposphere is applied to study the effects of changed emissions of NOx, CH4, CO2 and NMHC on the levels of O3, OH and CH4. On a mass basis, the efficiencies in increasing O3 concentrations differs markedly between...

Biological effects of climate change: An introduction to the field and a survey of current research

Gørill Kristiansen (Report;1993:03)

This report presents a survey of international (Chapter 2) as well as national research activities within 13 selected countries (Chapter 3) in the field of biological effects of climate change. In addition, a brief overview of potential changes within natural ecosystems in response to climate change...

Study to develop practical guidelines for "Joint Implementation" under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change

Ted Hanisch, Rolf Selrod, Asbjørn Torvanger, Hans Asbjørn Aaheim (Report;1993:02)

In December 1991, the OECD Environment and Development Ministers directed OECD "to initiate work on mechanisms to facilitate joint implementation, in a cost effective manner, of commitments on greenhouse gases." This report has been prepared for the Environment Directorate of the OECD as part of the...
