Adapting to Climate Impacts

 While entire nations may disappear, much can be done to protect the lives and livelihoods of the majority of people living in marginal regions afflicted by climate change. Such efforts will require sophisticated expertise and technical measures, fundamental changes to our emergency response systems and higher levels of community involvement.

All measures will also imply some cost, and the world’s poorest communities, first and worst affected by climate change, cannot afford to cover that additional expense. As a result, human suffering is on the rise.
