The effects and impacts of climate change are being felt globally. Adapting to these changes has become our reality, along with mitigation. Solutions to adaptation can take many forms, from switching to drought-resilient crops, to building flood infrastructure. Adaptation also often requires implementing key policy changes at local, regional, and country-wide levels. This collection showcases current research on climate change adaptation, with respect to strategies, policy assessments, and identifying and managing vulnerabilities.
