Climate Change Adaptation

Climate change adaptation involves making adjustments in natural or human systems in response to actual or expected climatic stimuli or their effects. This includes implementing strategies and practices to minimize damage, take advantage of opportunities, or cope with the consequences of climate change. Adaptation measures can be structural, such as building flood defenses, or non-structural, like policy changes and community education.

Effective adaptation requires a thorough understanding of climate risks and vulnerabilities. It often involves a combination of proactive planning and reactive adjustments to emerging climate impacts. Businesses can enhance their resilience by integrating climate risk assessments into their planning processes, diversifying supply chains, and investing in adaptive technologies and infrastructure.
