What is climate change adaptation?

Climate change adaptation comprises all the actions and solutions that a country, a region, a city, or a community can develop and implement to build more resilient societies and economies, to respond to the impacts of climate change that are already happening or are expected. It is a series of changes in processes, practices and structures that aim to moderate the potential damages brought by climate change. The solutions for climate adaptation vary from one context to another. They can range from building flood defences or setting up early warning systems for cyclones to redesigning communication systems, business operations and government policies.
