Impacts of fires on water quality

Fires can lead to the contamination of surface and groundwater resources with suspended sediments, metals, organic compounds and nutrients. Our policy brief highlights research gaps that could improve risk assessment and management.

CCA & DRR network analysis

Our interactive visualisation explores the climate change adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR) landscape, building on analysis of stakeholders, platforms, user needs and networks.

Visualising a harmonised language for CCA & DRR

Shared terminology is critical to improving the effectiveness and uptake of climate communication. Our poster for ECCA 2017 explored understanding and harmonisation between the terms and language used in climate adaptation (CCA) and disaster risk reduction (DRR).
