Climate Change

Climate Change logoClimate change - a change in climate caused by human activity - is a global issue that has far-reaching environmental and socioeconomic impact. Tackling climate change requires action on two fronts.

  1. mitigation by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases from sectors such as energy, transport and agriculture.
  2. adaptation by understanding future climate change and its specific environmental, social and economic impact.

The complexity of climate change makes it an important area for policy learning and the exchange of experience across regions.

"The impact of climate change are not evenly distributed - the poorest countries and people will suffer earliest and most. And if and when the damages appear it will be too late to reverse the process. Thus we are forced to look a long way ahead."
