The February report focusses on impacts, adaptation and vulnerability in relation to climate change. It will provide both a global and regional understanding of the changes so far, future risks and options to reduce the risks for humans and eco systems. It will also look at climate change in the context of culture, values, ethics, identity, behaviour, historical experience, and knowledge systems (e.g., indigenous and local). Fascinating stuff.
However, if you’re not sold yet, the report will also highlight how we are currently adapting to climate change and what adaptation responses may exist in the future. Instead of all gloom and doom, we’re finally getting tangible, actual, real solutions, as well as a hint towards a brighter future: a world that looks much less like Dune or Waterworld. Phew!
