Our climate is changing. Our world is getting hotter. Our weather is becoming more volatile. Through intelligent intervention, however, we can adapt and bolster our resilience to these new climate extremes. Delivering this demands global cooperation and partnership. To drive the urgent action required, the Global Commission on Adaptation has launched its “Year of Action”, a series of initiatives intended to see the delivery of practical measures to #AdaptOurWorld to the looming threat of climate change.
