  Global warming is associated with migration from farming communities and from small islands and coastal areas. Evidence of climate change impacts on migration in other settings is less clear. The combined impact of travel and climate change can favour the importation, establishment and spread of tropical diseases in temperate regions. This book is a compilation of recent developments in the field of ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and climate change adaption (Eco-DRR/CCA) globally. It provides further evidence that ecosystem-based approaches make economic sense, and showcases how research has progressively filled knowledge gaps about translating this concept into. References.

An exploratory study on adapting to climate change in coastal areas of Sri Lanka/ Shanila Athulathmudali, Amila Balasuriya, Karin Fernando. – Colombo: Centre for Poverty Analysis, – 62p. ; 29 cm. (Working paper Series No. ) ISBN: Price: i. DDC 23 ii. Title iii. Balasuriya, Amila iv. For agricultural adaptation, the mechanism is to (1) develop Integrated pest management practices for the pest control, (2) develop climate resilient, heat, drought, flood, salt tolerant varieties of crops, (3) demarcate Agro-Ecological Regions in Sri Lanka with current and future climate, and recommend appropriate crops for different areas to reduce vulnerability, and (4) introduce suitable.

Climate change in Sri Lanka is a threat to the island's biodiversity, including its marine ecosystem and coastal coral reef environments.

Sea-level rise due to climate change has the potential to affect the overall abundance of endemic species. Sri Lanka's costal regions such as Northern and Northern Western provinces are considered major hotspots and extremely vulnerable to climate change.

Book Description. Coastal communities are at the frontline of a changing climate. Escalating problems created by sea-level rise, a greater number of severe coastal storms, and other repercussions of climate change will exacerbate already pervasive impacts resulting from rapid coastal population growth and intensification of development.

This chapter presents a conceptual framework for integrating ecosystem values into climate-compatible development planning. Case studies from coastal areas of Kenya and Sri Lanka illustrate how such an approach can be applied in practice to make the economic and business case for ecosystem-based by: 1.

This report synthesizes the results of country and sector studies on the economic costs and benefits of unilateral and regional actions on climate change in ADB’s six South Asia developing members, namely Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

The study takes into account the different scenarios and impacts projected across vulnerable sectors and estimates the total economic loss. Biodiversity and Climate Change Adaptation in Tropical Islands provides comprehensive information on climate change, biodiversity, possible impacts, adaptation measures and policy challenges to help users rehabilitate and preserve the natural resources of tropical islands.

While biodiversity and climate change of tropical islands has previously received less attention, it is ironically one of the most. There is an urgent need to ensure that coastal areas are adapting to the impacts of climate change.

Risks in these areas are projected to increase because of rising sea levels and development pressures. This report reviews how OECD countries can use their national adaptation planning processes to respond to this challenge.

Specifically, the report examines how countries approach shared costs. In Sri Lanka, poverty is associated with reliance on wage work with studies showing that households are more likely to be poor when household members are engaged in casual employment.

According to an exploratory study on adapting to climate change in coastal areas of Sri Lanka by Shanila Athulathmudali, et al, nearly 70 per cent of the paddy cultivated is in the dry zone which has an average annual rainfall of less than mm.

Consequently, adaptive measures are vital when climate goes haywire. Coastal erosion continues to be a major issue in coastal zone management. Coastal erosion has been accelerated in many areas of Sri Lanka’s coastline due to activities of humans, both within and at the inland of the coastal zone (Table ).Managing human activities and development initiatives along an already eroding and continually developing coastline is so much complicated.

The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) secretariat has produced this book to highlight the concerns and needs of developing countries in adapting to the effects of climate change. This book outlines the impact of climate change in four developing country regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America and small.

For those who are not involved in the field, climate change in relation to Sri Lanka may not sound as much a pressing issue as compared to floating armouries and political changes within the country.

Climate Seasons. The Climate of Sri Lanka is dominated by the above mentioned topographical features of the country and the Southwest and Northeast monsoons regional scale wind regimes. The Climate experienced during 12 months period in Sri Lanka can be characterized in to 4 climate.

Adaptation to Climate Change: ASEAN and Comparative Experiences presents a dynamic and comprehensive collection of works from legal scholars around the world that delves into a relatively new frontier on legal aspects of climate change adaptation with focus on the ASEAN region, both at the regional level as well as at the national level in some ASEAN countries — such as Malaysia.

This book outlines the performance and management of mangroves in the changing climatic scenario of the Asia-Pacific region and draws examples and lessons from the national and community-driven mangrove conservation programs of relevant countries including Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Japan as well as the Pacific islands.

Pradeep Kurukurasuriya, head of the Climate Change Adaptation for UNDP presented an overview of UNDP's support to the Least Developed Countries in climate change adaptation programming. The support are in the areas of National Adaptation Plans, the implement of NAPAs, capacity development for risk informed planning and budgeting and helping.

Coastal Management: Changing coast, changing climate, changing minds is an essential resource for coastal engineers, coastal and environmental scientists, local and central government authorities and coastal stakeholders, all of whom must understand and adapt to the conflicting pressures of modern coastal management.

"Climate Change and Island and Coastal Vulnerability” is the outcome of a selection of peer reviewed edited papers presented at the International Workshop on Climate Change and Island Vulnerability (IWCCI) held at Kadmat Island, Lakshadweep, India in October Marine and coastal biodiversity.

Unlike India, Sri Lanka has not spoken of devolution even during the last bilateral discussion with PM Modi and PM Mahinda Rajapaksa.

Second, the US position on the Indo-Pacific and China will have an impact on Sri Lanka’s foreign policy. Many Scholars assess that there is a bipartisan consensus on US-China policy. There is an urgent need to ensure that coastal areas are adapting to the impacts of climate change.

Risks in these areas are projected to increase because of rising sea levels and development pressures. This report reviews how OECD countries can use their national adaptation planning processes to respond to this challenge. Description This book focuses on the challenges people face in managing agricultural crops, aquaculture, fisheries and related ecosystems in areas of coastal zones in the tropics of Asia, Africa, Australia and South America.

Challenges arise from conflicts in the use of natural resources among different stakeholders. Book Description This volume brings together, for the first time, a wide-ranging and detailed body of information identifying and assessing risk, vulnerability and adaptation to climate change in urban centres in low- and middle-income countries.

Coastal Areas. Global climate change threatens coastlines and the buildings and cities located along them. Hundreds of millions of people around the world live in low–lying areas near the coast that could be flooded as the sea level rises.

Rising sea level will also erode beaches and damage many coastal. Sri Lanka’s overall experience, including its mediated peace process during the war years, remains instructive.

Unlike Sri Lanka, however, Afghanistan is fighting multiple regional and global terrorist and criminal groups which operate under the umbrella of the Taliban with safe havens in our neighbourhood. The agendas of those trying to reduce poverty and those trying to protect the environment have been at odds in the past.

But they are coming together now due to a recognition of the increasing role of the environment in the lives of the poor in developing countries, especially with the changes to the environment being caused by global warming.
