, either direct or indirect, can lead to increased use of and more awareness of sheltering plans ( Senkbeil et al. 2012 ), a willingness to learn about and prepare for future tornadoes ( Blanchard-Boehm and Cook 2004 ), and even an increase in warning response rate ( Silver and Andrey 2014 ). Other studies have found no effect of prior experience on future behavior ( Nagele and Trainor 2012 ) or even an inverse relationship between prior experience with nonverifying tornado warnings and warning

outdoor variability, and the heterogeneity of that response among different indoor environments are largely unknown ( Jendritzky and Dear 2009 ; White-Newsome et al. 2012 ). The predominant use of outdoor weather and climate data for studying human health outcomes is likely due to the widespread availability of such data and the relative paucity of existing indoor environmental data records. Here we investigate the associations between outdoor and indoor temperature and humidity for 327 middle

The MAGRAMA database SIGPAC (Common Agricultural Policy GIS; MAGRAMA 2006 ) provides information about land use, and the Guadalquivir Basin Authority (Confederación Hidrográfíca del Guadalquivir) about irrigation ( CHG 2010 ) and current and future water resource ( Berbel 2008 ).

). Moreover, 65% of global drylands consist of grassland used for livestock production, as these areas often are marginal for agriculture because of low or erratic rainfall or flood risks ( Mortimore 2009 ). In East Africa, a few studies have assessed the type of information pastoralists are assumed to be interested in ( Luseno et al. 2003 ; Kaitho et al. 2007 ). Kaitho et al. (2007) used real-time satellite weather data to simulate daily forage conditions and near-term forecasts of these conditions

they have to operate now and in the future, and adaptation to weather, climate variability, and change is crucial ( Becken and Wilson 2016 ; Curtis et al. 2011 ; Michailidou et al. 2016 ). A well-adapted tourism sector can be competitive as it innovates destination products and services, uses less weather and climate dependent resources, and integrates climate information in its planning and development processes ( Michailidou et al. 2016 ; Pütz et al. 2011 ). There has simultaneously been a

for highly exposed regions like the Pacific Ocean area [see the exception in Remling and Veitayaki (2016) ] that have many communities at the vanguard of adaptation. This paper explores some compelling alternative entry points for adaptation delivery and improved outcomes for local people in Vanuatu. In this way, we do not necessarily call for abandoning the use of CBA and community scales altogether but rather attempt to offer hope by identifying alternative entry points that can be used to

, as farmers have to make several climate-sensitive decisions months in advance of the rice farming season ( Asante and Amuakwa-Mensah 2015 ). A similar challenge exists in irrigated rice farming. The difficulty of predicting rainfall and consequently river discharge affects the decisions of water managers about water distribution to the irrigated farmlands. The use of weather and climate forecasts could be an instrument that helps farmers in their decision-making to improve agricultural

advantage of funding from multiple sources. Many documents, guidance platforms, and budgeting processes (e.g., sustainability plans, master plans, land use plans, transportation plans, capital improvement plans) could benefit from integrating climate science and information on risks and opportunities. For the most part, when climate information is used in preparing these plans, it is based on historical weather patterns rather than on projections of future hazards informed by climate and impacts science
