“What is a digital cold war?”

The Cold War of the 20th century ended before the rise of modern computer networks. Many people believe that the internet makes such a world-defining paradigm impossible as anyone can communicate with anyone decentralized. However, nations can entirely blocklist and lockout the internet of other countries, thereby creating a communications barrier. This is how a Digital Cold War can come up and spread.

Why Representation Mandates for Climate Finance Are Critically Important

Why Representation Mandates for Climate Finance Are Critically Important

01/06/22

“Why are representation mandates for climate finance critically important?”

Climate finance governs which projects receive funding for research and implementation. However, a lot of the powers that control it comes from communities that enjoy structural power over others. The solutions that these people think of will largely come from the viewpoints and context of how they were brought up and may not have the best impact given the people most affected by climate change do not fit into this bubble. For this reason, representation mandates need to be implemented so more accurate climate solutions can be developed. This is Why Representation Mandates for Climate Finance Are Critically Important.

“Why do nations have to look into procuring raw materials for vaccines?”

Vaccine manufacturing is one of the most important things a country can do to fight a pandemic. However, it will need to have the raw materials to do so, which involve a variety of trade organizations and material lookout. This is why Procuring Raw Materials for Vaccines is so important.

“How can we anticipate lost tax revenue in the future as a result of climate displacement?”

Certain cities are going to lose population as a result of climate displacement. This will lead said cities to have lower populations and in turn, less money to collect through taxes. To brace for this, towns should look into Anticipating Lost Tax Revenue as a Result of Climate Displacement. This can be accomplished through methods ranging from economic forecasts to historical demographic reviews of cities that have experienced depopulation from natural disasters.

“How can we implement climate-resilient prefabricated housing?”

More and more prefabricated housing will need to get built so climate migrants can get shelter. However, to make sure that they can stay well during further climate impacts, governments and developers will need to look into Climate Resilient Prefabricated Housing. These designs can range from elevated housing to insulate from floods to homes made out of fireproof materials to protect against wildfires.

“How can we use drones to inspect the damages derived from disasters?”

Drone technology is a large paradigm shift when it comes to remote monitoring. One of the greatest applications it has is for analyzing damage done to areas from disasters. Because of this, drones make a very handy tool when it comes to disaster recovery by being able to do complete monitoring. This is why Using Drones to for Disaster Damage Inspection represents such a paradigm shift.

“How can we use analytics to predict urban growth in response to climate change?”

Cities and urban areas are going to change drastically in response to climate change in ways that we have never seen before. Certain areas are going to become less inhabitable, buildings will have to be redesigned with new hazard standards in mind, and we may even see full-scale retreat. So what can we do to look at how things might occur? Well, what if we were to use simulation software to take into account all of these factors to visualize how these changes might occur? Well, that’s called Using Analytics to Predict Urban Growth in Response to Climate Change and is one way we can peer into the new climate paradigm.

“How will studying climate change and epidemiology become linked in the future?”

Global warming is going to make the world more habitable for disease-carrying vectors such as mosquitos and rats. This population multiplication is going to lead to these creatures spreading all over the globe and more interaction between humans and these species, giving rise to new diseases and epidemics. To prevent these disasters from getting out of control, researchers are going to need to yield the power of Climate Epidemiology to research what makes all of this tick.

“How can we plan for different levels of sea-level rise?”

 

Sea-level rise is going to occur because of climate change. However, the level of rise depends on how much hotter the world is over pre-industrial levels. Since there are multiple possibilities contingent upon carbon emissions rate and time passed, urban areas are going to have to plan for different levels of sea-level rise. This can be accomplished by consulting local citizens and technical experts as well as performing risk and cost-benefit analysis. This is how Planning for Different Levels of Sea-Level Rise will work.
