Climate change adaptation is a response to global warming and climate change, that seeks to reduce the vulnerability of social and biological systems to relatively sudden change and thus offset the effects of global warming.[1] Even if emissions are stabilized relatively soon, global warming and its effects should last many years, and adaptation would be necessary to the resulting changes in climate.[2] Adaptation is especially important in developing countries since those countries are predicted to bear the brunt of the effects of global warming.[3] That is, the capacity and potential for humans to adapt (called adaptive capacity) is unevenly distributed across different regions and populations, and developing countries generally have less capacity to adapt (Schneider et al., 2007).[4] Furthermore, the degree of adaptation correlates to the situational focus on environmental issues.[5]Therefore, adaptation requires the situational assessment of sensitivity and vulnerability to environmental impacts.[6] Adaptive capacity is closely linked to social and economic development (IPCC, 2007).[7] The economic costs of adaptation to climate change are…
