MEDEA : Mapping Environment Debate on Adaptation
climate change, adaptation
Earth's climate is changing. Slowly but inexorably. As determined by the latest IPCC Assessment Report (2014), the actions so far to reduce greenhouse emissions are insufficient and the first impacts of global warming are beginning to show. Like it or not, our collective life will have to adapt to its changing environment and the trade-offs will not be easy or painless. This awareness is prompting the emergence of debates around the world about how best to adapt to a changing climate.
