Climate Change Policy

Development of climate change adaptation plan

IPCC predicts that climate change continues to influence for the next 1,000 years due to greenhouse gas (GHG). To efficiently address the effects of climate change, a climate change adaptation plan is needed. In case we don’t prepare for climate change in advance, irreversible loss of lives and astronomical economic damages can be occurred. We have expertise in planning for adaptation to climate change by establishing measures to adapt to climate change for many local governments including Gangwon-do and public institutions. We have maintained the expertise by preparing policy briefs to continuously adapt to climate change and conducting policy research on climate change adaptation issues in Gangwon-do. Our main role is to analyze local status of climate change and its mid- and long-term prospects and forecast the impact of climate change to local community and public facilities in order to establish a climate change adaptation plan. We also propose a road map for a climate change adaptation plan by conducting customized risk assessment and vulnerability assessment of local climate change.

We provide policies to minimize damages caused by the current social issues such as fine dust, flood, drought, heat waves, etc. due to recent climate change. We conduct research on a detailed implementation plan to adapt to climate change for metropolitan and local governments.

We research programs and welfare policies to protect vulnerable classes who are expected to get most damaged by climate change. And we discover new growth industries for local communities to turn climate change crisis into opportunities.

Research on Water Resources and Disasters

Total annual precipitation due to climate change increases. Through analysis and predicts of its influence, we conduct research on the foundation of risk and vulnerability assessment to give a preemptive response to disaster and water management.

We establish a safe plan to prevent disasters in a calamity danger district and an appropriate plan to control water by predicting the scale of flood risk. We also establish the mid- and long-term plan to prepare for drought through basic researchs on water resources and calculation of water resources reserve during dry season.

Development of International Cooperation for Climate Change Response

To respond globally challenging climate change, international cooperation is essential. The climate change response plays an important role in accomplishing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). International cooperation to respond climate change can be achieved in several ways among various parties interested.

Analyzing the various conditions, making the strategies and developing the policies to internationally respond climate change have been carried.
