The study analyses Vanuata’s legal/policy approaches to climate impacts and the limitations of UNFCCC negotiations have prompted the state to consider climate litigation. Policy solutions suggest that Oceanic people remain actively resistant rather than passive victims of a changing climate.
This paper reviews the evidence on slow-onset events presented in the Special Report on Climate Change and Land (SRCCL) and the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). It provides an overview of the state of the art on the eight types of slow-onset events and helps to identify gaps and challenges in understanding their nature, their impact and effective management approaches.

This paper looks into the connections between slow-onset climate events and the increasing number of people at risk of poverty and social marginalization. By looking into the multiple dimensions of vulnerability and resilience, this paper derives recommendations on how potentials can be translated into strategic policy agendas and discusses options for financing such interventions in developing countries. In addition to the main SDGs this article is related to SDG 16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions) and SDG 17 (Partnership for the Goals).

This paper evaluates possible sources of finance for addressing loss and damage from slow-onset climate events in developing countries. While insurance schemes are not appropriate, levies and taxes are seen as relatively predictable, adequate, transparent, and additional. The results confirm that current options for sustainably and equitably financing loss and damage from slow-onset events are limited. In addition to the main SDGs this article is indirectly related to: SDG 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth), SDG 9 (Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure), SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) and SDG 12 (Responsible Consumption and Production)
This paper assesses the impact of geodiversity on biodiversity focusing on the relevance of patch- to hillslope-scale geodiversity for the slow-onset effects of climate change, including land and forest degradation, biodiversity loss and desertification. It also argues that geodiversity fits the concept of biodiversity hotspots, ecological niches and climatic refugee and that human-made geodiversity may either restore or degrade ecosystem functioning.
This paper investigates approaches to planned relocation as one possible response to slow-onset climate change impacts and principles to inform the design of a fair and effective funding system. This article relates to SDGs 10, 15 & 17 and is indirectly related to SDG 11 and SDG 13.

This paper covers an extensive research on the process of soil salinization in the last few decades in the area of Vojvodina (Serbia), including qualitative and quantitative composition of salt in various systematic soil units. This article is directly related to SDG 6 and SDG 15, and is indirectly related to SDG 13.
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.
