Brief introduction:

In this session, we will discuss concrete evidence of the impacts of climate change on ecosystems including mountainous ecosystems, riverine ecosystems, coastal ecosystems, marine ecosystems, and the impacts on human society from different aspects such as water supply, water resource security, energy sustainability, environment sustainability, ecosystem sustainability and government fragility. Also, we will look at climate measurement processes: methodologies and technologies of climate measurement processes, paleoclimatology, climate change assessment, environmental change, sea level change, floods, drought, forest fires, hurricanes, other climate extremes and disasters, climate change impact and vulnerability, and climate change resilience.
