Climate change is one of the major challenges of our time. Escalating climate disasters like storms, floods, and dry spells lead to disruptions,social conflicts, and unrest. This book elucidates the reality of climate adaptation related challenges and needs in vulnerable territories.It considers cities, land use, anticipatory governance, and the role of civil society, as well as early warning systems and nature-based solutions. The research also highlights major obstacles such as funding, knowledge gaps,trade-offs, social justice, and multi-stakeholder cooperation. The book is unique in that it unites a variety of perspectives and examples from different regions to develop a thorough and nuanced perspective on potential climatechange solutions and the barriers to behavioral change at all levels of climate-related decision making.
