Despite efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, some degree of climate change is
inevitable. Our climate is changing and already we are feeling the impacts of changing rainfall
patterns, more severe weather events and fluctuating temperatures. The need for businesses,
local authorities and public bodies to manage their climate risks and implement adaptation
and resilience measures is immediate.

The decisions and investments we make today will determine how we live with climate
change in the future. Mitigation actions protect our future - the need for Climate Adaptation
and Resilience is with us now. Are we taking it seriously enough at all levels?
