    Assessment and communication of environmental risks in coastal aquaculture, Contents

    Description
    This report (in 21 parts) presents a set of objectives, goals, methodologies and a checklist for assessment and communication of environmental risks potentially associated with coastal aquaculture. Six case studies illustrate the use of environmental risk assessment methodologies in coastal aquaculture discussing benthic community changes, shellfish farming, interbreeding of wild and escaped farm cod, fish farming waste, soil salinisation due to low-salinity shrimp farming and coastal aquaculture's potential effects on algal blooms.

    Climate change impact and adaptation study for Bangkok Metropolitan Region: final report

    Description
    The potential impact of climate change on the Bangkok Metropolitan Region (BMR) was examined in this study. A knowledgebase of past and present climatic and socioeconomic situations was compiled and a mathematical model for simulating the effects of climate change on hydrology was developed. The impact for the year 2050 under different climate change scenarios was assessed and adaptation options for the city were recommended. This report is the primary output from a climate change impact and adaptation study for the Bangkok Metropolitan Region (BMR), and was published in March 2009 by The World Bank.

    Country stakes in climate change negotiations: two dimensions of vulnerability

    Description
    This policy research report examines developing countries' likely attitudes to international treaties regulating carbon emissions, concluding that the clear differences in the factors that determine likely negotiating positions are based on the country's vulnerability to climate change impacts and that the barriers in the transition to renewable energy are political and institutional rather than a lack of availability. Detailed tables of relevant data for the countries covered are also included. This report was published by The World Bank in 2007.
