This study suggested several recommendations for the consideration of future scholars.

1 day ago  Impacts from climate change are happening now. These impacts extend well beyond an increase in temperature, affecting ecosystems and communities in the United States and around the world. Things that we depend upon and value — water, energy, transportation, wildlife, agriculture, ecosystems, and human health — are experiencing the effects The book is based on key contributions from the First International Conference on Climate Change Adaptation ‘Climate Adaptation Futures’, held on the Gold Coast, Australia, in June That three-day meeting of over researchers and practitioners in adaptation from 50   Beyond Agricultural Impacts: Multiple Perspectives on Climate Change in Africa presents the theories and methods commonly applied in climate change assessment from various locations in Africa, also inspiring further research that addresses the broad spectrum of societal impacts that result from altered climate status.

This book is an update and expansion of the document published in by the Canadian Climate Impacts and Adaptation Research Network (Mehdi, ) under the same title. It provides municipal decision-makers and staff with information to help them understand the need for climate change adaptation and how to put adaptation

For the purpose of this study anticipatory adaptation is the “adjustment [undertaken in advance] by a system to moderate the impacts of climate change, to take advantages of new opportunities or to cope with the consequences” (Adger et al., , p. 15). Adaptation is seen as a continuous process of learning and reflection (Folke, ). The Bank of Canada has a mandate to “promote the economic and financial welfare of Canada,” primarily through the conduct of monetary policy and promotion of a safe, sound and efficient financial system. Understanding the macroeconomic and financial system impacts of climate change and the transition to a low-carbon economy is therefore a priority for the :// The scarce interest on the environmental impacts of adaptation may be attributed to (1) an excessive sectoral approach, with dominance of non-environmental perspectives, (2) greater interest in mitigation and direct climate change impacts rather than in adaptation impacts, (3) a tendency to consider adaptation as inherently good, and (4 Climate Impact and Adaptation Assessment: The IPCC Method.
