It involves comprehending, making plans, and acting to safeguard people, the environment, and our prosperity. Inaction today will make adaptation more expensive and challenging for future generations. It will take scientific advancements across a variety of fields, including technologies, solutions, and services for adaptation in areas like
· Drought-resilient crops
· Water saving technologies
· Satellites for environmental observation
· Rapid progress in adaptation science and climate analytics as a basis for state-of-the-art climate information
· Scaling up of digital tools to take our adaptive capacities to the next level
This will need to go hand in hand with societal transformation and large-scale behavioral change.
