To appreciate the implications of climate change, there needs to be a diagnostic of the sources of changing sea-level temperatures, precipitation and climatic phenomena. The implications need to be clearly drawn for climatic changes that are secular versus those that are anthropogenic, for the need for prevention as opposed to only responding. Two sets of actions are called for: climate mitigation involving a switch to a low-carbon economy and climate adaptation involving the building of better defenses and coping capabilities. The needed responses vary across country and locational typologies, and case studies illustrate the types of investments and policies needed. Learning outcomes: - Diagnose and analyse the sources and nature of the growing climate risk. - Identify the natural and anthropogenic factors behind climate change. - Connect climate change to the rise of climate related and natural disasters and devise action. - Design and implement climate mitigation and climate adaptation strategies
