Report: UNEP – Loss and Damage

In a joint project with UNEP and a number of other institutions I contributed to the UNEP report on ‘Loss and Damage: The Role of Ecosystem Services. The report was launched last week at the second session of the UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) in Nairobi and aims to enhance understanding of climatic stressor effects on ecosystems and possible correlations and implications for societal losses and damages’.

The research group’s ‘Integrated Spatial Indicator (ISI)’ main task was the compilation and cartography of the case study chapters on Cyclone Haiyan and the EU Heat Wave in 2003.

On a side note: a photo taken by myself, showing river bank erosion along the Jamuna/Brahmaputra in Bangladesh made it on the cover of the UNEP report.
