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.
The Paris Agreement underlines the importance of adaptation and anchors the need for it in the international agenda. With the adoption of the Paris Agreement, its global goal on adaptation has been set as an indispensable component of climate action equal to mitigation.
adaptationcommunity.net was developed for the interested public and adaptation experts to provide information on applying approaches, methods and tools that facilitate the planning and implementation of adaptation action.
