Climate Change

is one of the greatest
challenges of our time.

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. People and states worldwide are already affected by its destructive impacts. Especially developing countries are vulnerable to global warming and its consequences. Adaptation to climate change is a strategy with the ultimate goal of avoiding harm and costs that can arise from doing business as usual without taking climate change into consideration.
