Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability, Volume 50, June 2021

This paper reviews how and why Traditional and Local Knowledge (TLK) needs to be integrated into climate change adaptation in Latin America and Caribbean. TLK systems and practical actions can collaborate with scientific knowledge in impact and risk assessment to develop both short and long-term planning. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 4 (Quality Education) and SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).

This paper looks into the negative effects of slow-onset events related to climate change in Southeast Asia ranging from economic, ecological, and social impacts. As such they require an integrated response option whether mitigation or adaptation that pays attention to the complexity of the intersection between human and natural systems.

The study finds that the area of salt-affected soils is gradually increasing due to the influence of climate change; soil salinity tends to increase with increase in sea level intrusion and temperature, decrease in precipitation and improper irrigation management. There is an enormous scope for research on the correlation between climate change and soil salinity drivers at global and regional scale. In addition to the main SDGs, this article is indirectly related to SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDG 14 (Life Below Water).

This study reviews and assesses the challenges posed by slow-onset events related to climate change and its links to poverty and food security in Latin America and the Caribbean. Different strategies focused on adaptation are being assessed in this study. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure).

As sea level rise drives saltwater farther inland, drinking water supplies of some coastal cities will be contaminated. This paper evaluates how climate change is shifting the location of the zone where coastal fresh water meets the ocean, and implications for drinking water management. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 14 (Life Below Water).

A comprehensive loss and damage finance taxonomy and framework identifies a set of finance options for supporting slow-onset driven key systems as they will need avoid breaching soft and hard limits: natural systems and social systems. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 13 (Climate Action).

Sea-level rise poses a significant threat to Small Island Developing States (SIDS) due to the concentration of people, assets, and infrastructure in coastal zones. This paper reviews approaches to address sea-level rise as well as limits to adaptation and resultant economic and non-economic loss and damage that may be experienced by SIDS. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 10 (Reduced Inequalities), SDG 14 (Life Below Water) and SDG 17 (Partnership for the Goals).

Land and forest degradation and desertification (LFDD) are a driver of human displacement and have implications for long-term development policy. The study finds that, in Latin American and Caribbean countries, the linkages between LFDD and human mobility are poorly acknowledged in their climate and desertification policy frameworks. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions).

This paper reviews recent analyses of intensifying seasonal and year-round extreme heat exposure as a slow-onset event. It focuses on occupational contexts, including impacts on worker productivity, health and wellbeing, reduced GDP, and the viability of economic sectors. It closes with an indication of tools available to assess and address these risks. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production).
