The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) - the world's largest humanitarian organization - released a report estimating the growth of humanitarian need if current human activities continue. Published this month, "The Cost of Doing Nothing" paints a bleak picture of global need for humanitarian assistance doubling to 200 million. The price tag, the report projects, could come to $20 billion annually.

Scientists map Vulnerability to Climate Change

Satellites, such as ESA's Proba-V, can monitor vegetation intactness from space.

Scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Society, the University of Queensland, and Stanford University have produced a world map indicated the most and least vulnerable areas to climate change, as ScienceDaily reported. With this map, that indicates the global distribution of the climate stability/ecoregional intactness relationship, the authors aim to support governments, environmental agencies, and donors to identify areas where to best invest in adaptation efforts.
