Climate change is one of the biggest challenges of the present time. The impact of climate change and the subsequent risk of floods, droughts and heat waves on society will only increase in the coming decades. Urgent action to combat climate change and it impacts is required by reducing greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation) as well as reducing the impact of climate change (adaptation).
