Mobility in the Face of Extreme Hydrometeorological Events 1 Book Excerpt:

Mobilities Facing Hydrometeorological Extreme Events 1: Defining the Relevant Scales of Analysis provides a summary of the interdisciplinary work done over the past ten years on the exposure of daily mobility. Residential mobility, the way in which the occupation of the flood zones evolves with time, and the resulting immobile exposure are also at the heart of this work. In the face of recrudescence and the intensification of fast floods, the book seeks to understand how the interaction of hydro-meteorological, social and development dynamics combine to bring about an improvement or, on the contrary, a worsening of both mobile and immobile exposure. The book relies on different fields and studies conducted in the South East of France and more broadly on the Mediterranean basin to answer these questions and verify these hypotheses, with a forward challenge to better understand how population movements are exposed to these phenomena. Provides a synthesis of interdisciplinary work on the exposure of daily mobilities Establishes a diagram of the evolution of the flood zones and the immobile exposure Finds the cause and effect of these phenomena Conducts studies to answer these questions and verify these hypotheses

Mobility in the Face of Extreme Hydrometeorological Events 1 Defining the Relevant Scales of Analysis Book Excerpt:

With climate change, flash floods are multiplying and intensifying in various regions of the world and especially in the Mediterranean. Motorists are particularly vulnerable to these violent and difficult to predict events. Thus, half of the flood victims concern people surprised by their daily mobility, going to work or going to pick up their children at school. There is therefore a challenge to better understand how population movements are exposed to these phenomena. The aim of this book is to first provide a summary of the interdisciplinary work done over the past ten years on the exposure of daily mobility. This cannot be done without taking into consideration how these mobilities have evolved with the reorganization of spaces over long time. Residential mobility, the way in which the occupation of the flood zones evolves with time and the resulting immobile exposure are thus also at the heart of this work. In the face of recrudescence and the intensification of fast floods, we seek to understand how the interaction of hydro-meteorological, social and development dynamics combine to bring about an improvement or, on the contrary, a worsening of both mobile and immobile exposure. One of our hypotheses is that each event constitutes a more or less significant trigger of adaptation actions at different scales. We rely on different fields and studies conducted in the South East of France and more broadly on the Mediterranean basin to answer these questions and verify these hypotheses. Volume 1: Exposure of residential and daily mobilities in extreme hydrometeorological situation Provides a synthesis of interdisciplinary work on the exposure of daily mobilities Establishes a diagram of the evolution of the flood zones and the immobile exposure Finds the cause and effect of these phenomena Conducts studies to answer these questions and verify these hypotheses

Mobilities Facing Hydrometeorological Extreme Events 2 Book Excerpt:

Mobilities Facing Hydrometeorological Extreme Events 2 covers our need to understand how the interaction of hydro-meteorological, social and development dynamics combine to bring improvement to or a worsening of both mobile and immobile exposure. The book provides a summary of the interdisciplinary work done over the past ten years. Residential mobility-the way in which the occupation of flood zones evolves over time-and its resulting immobile exposure are also at the heart of this work. In addition, the book explores how climate change and its relation to fast floods in various regions of the world, especially the Mediterranean, is creating extreme events. Provides a comprehensive understanding of residential and daily mobilities in extreme hydrometeorological situations Updates on mobility adaptation cycles in the face of extreme hydro-meteorological events

Towards the Perfect Weather Warning Book Excerpt:

This book is about making weather warnings more effective in saving lives, property, infrastructure and livelihoods, but the underlying theme of the book is partnership. The book represents the warning process as a pathway linking observations to weather forecasts to hazard forecasts to socio-economic impact forecasts to warning messages to the protective decision, via a set of five bridges that cross the divides between the relevant organisations and areas of expertise. Each bridge represents the communication, translation and interpretation of information as it passes from one area of expertise to another and ultimately to the decision maker, who may be a professional or a member of the public. The authors explore the partnerships upon which each bridge is built, assess the expertise and skills that each partner brings and the challenges of communication between them, and discuss the structures and methods of working that build effective partnerships. The book is ordered according to the “first mile” paradigm in which the decision maker comes first, and then the production chain through the warning and forecast to the observations is considered second. This approach emphasizes the importance of co-design and co-production throughout the warning process. The book is targeted at professionals and trainee professionals with a role in the warning chain, i.e. in weather services, emergency management agencies, disaster risk reduction agencies, risk management sections of infrastructure agencies. This is an open access book.

Climate Displacement in Mexico Book Excerpt:

This book presents the updated results of an investigation carried out in 2019. The National Autonomous University of Mexico’s (UNAM) Climate Change Research Program (PINCC), funded the research coordinated by Armelle Gouritin. The research aims to answer the following questions: Does the Mexican legal framework and public policies address forced internal climate mobility? If not, what could be the elements of a legal framework and public policies to address the phenomenon? As the phenomenon was approached it was clear that it was extremely complex and consisted of numerous tensions that would lead to other questions throughout the research process. Climate forced internal displacement is projected as a huge-scale phenomenon in Mexico. Against this background, the book provides the first critical diagnosis of the current politico-legal Mexican framework and finds it to be lagging behind in terms of prevention and attention. The book analyses the three-level Mexican governance (federal, state and local levels), and identifies serious loopholes according to a rights-based approach that particularly focuses on women, indigenous peoples, and persons and communities with scarce economic resources. The results provide information on up-coming legislative and political processes and provide benchmarks that can be applied in other case-studies, including other national frameworks’ critical analysis.

The Third Pillar of International Climate Change Policy Book Excerpt:

During the negotiations in 2015 that led to the adoption of the Paris Agreement, one of the most contentious issues was the introduction of a dedicated provision in Article 8 on what is known as ‘loss and damage’. The adoption of this new article, however, left many questions unanswered. What is the distinction between ‘loss and damage’, and ‘adaptation’? What are the legal implications of the inclusion of loss and damage as an article in a legal treaty? How can financial assistance and compensation best be channelled to victims of climate change loss and damage? What gaps remain in the loss and damage governance system? The Third Pillar of International Climate Change Policy: On ‘Loss and Damage’ after the Paris Agreement addresses these questions, and numerous others, and explores the present and future of loss and damage in the era of the Paris Agreement. This book provides an up-to-date analysis of ‘loss and damage’ which is often described as the third pillar of international climate change policy. It is based around four main themes: (i) insurance schemes, (ii) key gaps in loss and damage governance, including non-economic loss and damage and slow-onset events, (iii) legal aspects of loss and damage, and (iv) novel approaches to loss and damage. The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Climate Policy.
