Abstract

The need for action in the context of the climate crisis cannot be more urgent. We should start living with the inevitable climate change and its societal challenges. Adaptation processes are as much needed as are mitigation efforts. Adaptation processes can become the engine for sustainable economic activity. Adaptation can lead to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions; adaptation and mitigation do not contradict each other.
