Summary:
The Verde Island Passage in the northern Philippines is home to more documented species than any other marine habitat on earth. But this biodiversity is increasingly under threat from coastal erosion and rising water temperatures. The Conservation International (CI) environmental organization helps fishermen change their practices and thereby preserve fish stocks. During 'closed season', they can concentrate on alternative sources of income, such as tourism.

Agriculture and Climate Change What Can Farmers Do to Protect the Environment?

Deutsche Welle (Sep. 24, 2012) — The impact of climate change on international food production has long been underestimated. New studies looking at the effects of extreme weather scenarios on global food prices in 2030 project that the consumer price of corn and other grains could increase by as much as 140 percent. Moreover, scant attention is paid to the fact that the agricultural industry itself contributes to climate change. Experts maintain that the sector could theoretically reduce its CO2 emissions by some 6 billion tonnes a year. But how?

Shade Trees and Mangroves Climate Change in the South Pacific

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 6, 2012) — The Pacific island nation Vanuatu is running out of time. The indigenous inhabitants are already suffering from floods, cyclones, coastal erosion and water shortages. And climate researchers say the extreme weather will increase and sea levels will continue to rise. Most members of the indigenous population depend on natural resources from farming, forestry and fishing. Now climate change is endangering the livelihoods of the islands' inhabitants. Since 2009, Germany has been funding educational measures for politicians and journalists, and has kick-started several projects for the local rural population. On the main island, Efate, for example, new more robust vegetable varieties are being cultivated, as well as shade trees with nitrogen-fixing properties.
