More equitable solutions for climate adaptation and resilience strategies for the most vulnerable are needed, says new climate report.

Ten new insights from climate science


Human mobility in climate risk areas is increasing. The loss of mountain glaciers is accelerating. Reforming food systems can contribute to more equitable climate action. These are some of the latest insights from climate science presented at COP28.

At the ongoing climate meeting in Dubai, global experts in social and natural sciences have presented the ten most pressing findings from climate science. The 10 New Insights in Climate Science report summarizes the most crucial climate science research from the past 18 months.

– The analysis provides much-needed guidance for politicians and other decision-makers in society to make informed and effective decisions on climate and nature solutions, says Deliang Chen, a world-leading climate scientist from the University of Gothenburg and one of the contributors to the analysis.

Strategies needed for equitable climate adaptation  

Equitable climate adaptation and strategies to increase the resilience of the most vulnerable is one area the report highlights. The critical role of food systems in climate action is also highlighted given that they currently account for about one third of global greenhouse gas emissions. Policies must be adapted to regional and socio-cultural contexts to enable the establishment of equitable, low-carbon food systems, the report says.

Deliang Chen is optimistic that it is possible to act on the climate issue and achieve a turnaround.

- It is important to coordinate actions at all levels, from individual level, to national level, to international level. The issue needs to be solved globally and everyone needs to be involved, he says.

The analysis is compiled by the World Climate Research Program, Future Earth and The Earth League.
