describe how and why mitigation, adaptation, and sustainable development policies could be applied in planning responses to environmental changes driven by climate change?
Climate change has become a very serious threat to our natural environment and to living creatures around the planet. The causes of climate change are complex and fairly well understood while the consequences are even more complex and much less understood. Consequently, the policy responses to climate change are also multifaceted, controversial, and dynamic. Still, the spatial and temporal challenges created by this forceful environmental process require us to be creative and cognitive of the need to manage risks and vulnerabilities across the spectrum of rich, poor, and differentiated responsibilities.Choose one of the following scientific organizations and review their research on climate change. Cite three specific changes to the environment that are being driven by climate change or may result from future climate change. How will these changes to the environment affect their political, social, economic, or ethical perspectives (choose only one perspective to discuss)? In addition, describe how and why mitigation, adaptation, and sustainable development policies could be applied in planning responses to environmental changes driven by climate change?
