Research in a set of unique Canadian lakes is backing up a strange consequence of evolutionary theory often predicted but never before shown.
Building Peace and Climate Resilience: Aligning peacebuilding and climate adaptation in fragile states
Failure to integrate climate adaptation considerations into peacebuilding plans and post-conflict development agendas can undermine the long-term viability of both.
When protests swept Kazakhstan earlier this month, they were fueled by frustration with the ruling elite and entrenched inequality. But the unrest was sparked by a specific catalyst: an end to a government subsidy.
Countries are increasingly using their NAP processes to realize gender-responsive climate action and act on the Gender Action Plan (GAP) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

On its oil sands in northern Alberta, Suncor Energy scrapes vast open-pit mines and drills down deep into the ground to extract the viscous bitumen that has turned it into one of the largest energy companies in North America. The process is so energy-intensive that it has also made the firm into Canada’s largest carbon emitter: it belches roughly 28 million tonnes into the atmosphere every year, equivalent to the entire emissions of Tunisia.
Not a single country in the world prices fossil fuels "fairly". The fossil fuel industry benefits from subsidies worldwide – $11m every minute. Subsidies on oil, gas and coal amounted to $5.9 trillion in 2020, which may go up to $6.4 trillion in 2025, estimates the International Monetary Fund.
