Opportunity

The increased frequency and severity of extreme weather and climate impacts around the world suggests that urgent efforts are needed to better understand and manage such climate phenomena. Importantly, climate change occurs in tandem with other global mega-trends, including population growth, urbanisation, habitat destruction, resource depletion, pollution of the oceans, environmental degradation, biodiversity pressures and burgeoning rates of species extinctions, among others. The emergent state of affairs threatens to exacerbate existing vulnerabilities and poses unprecedented challenges and opportunities for practitioners and duty bearers worldwide. Climate change management is therefore appropriately cast as a broad and inclusive field of investigation which comprises diverse constituent parts and invites holistic management responses.
