Osaka, Shannon; et al. (2021): Framing “nature‐based” solutions to climate change

Osaka, Shannon; Bellamy, Rob; Castree, Noel (2021): Framing “nature‐based” solutions to climate change. In Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change. DOI: 10.1002/wcc.729.

"We review what counts (and what does not count) as a natural solution, and find that those labeled natural are routinely framed under technical and social appraisal criteria as being more beneficial, cost effective, mature, and democratic than ostensibly artificial counterparts."

Beck, S.; Oomen, Jeroen (2021): Imagining the corridor of climate mitigation – What is at stake in IPCC’s politics of anticipation?

Beck, S.; Oomen, Jeroen (2021): Imagining the corridor of climate mitigation – What is at stake in IPCC’s politics of anticipation? In Environmental Science & Policy 123, pp. 169–178. DOI: 10.1016/j.envsci.2021.05.011.

"The article examines how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) performs its self-proclaimed role as ‘mapmaker. We seek to contribute to the emerging literature on global environmental assessments (GEA) and climate politics by reconstructing how the IPCC imagines the corridor for climate mitigation."

The World Climate and Security Report (2021): Product of the Expert Group of the International Military Council on Climate and Security

The World Climate and Security Report (2021): Product of the Expert Group of the International Military Council on Climate and Security. Authors: Steve Brock (CCS), Oliver-Leighton Barrett (CCS), Laura Birkman (HCSS), Elisabeth Dick (HCSS), Leah Emanual (CCS), Sherri Goodman (CCS), Kate Guy (CCS), Sofia Kabbej (IRIS), Tom Middendorp (Clingendael), Michel Rademaker (HCSS), Femke Remmits (HCSS), Julia Tasse (IRIS). Edited by Erin Sikorsky.

"The report reveals that the increasing pace and intensity of climate hazards will strain military and security services around the world as they are called on to respond to climate-driven crises, while also facing direct climate threats to their own infrastructure and readiness. The authors also call on security institutions around the globe to act as “leading voices urging significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions, given recent warnings about the catastrophic security implications of climate change under plausible climate scenarios.”"
