Climate Change

Broadly, the scientific community and the public at large accept that there are profound changes taking place in the world’s climate and that at least some of these changes are the result of human activities. However, there is considerable debate about the impacts of these changes and therefore the best ways to mitigate and to plan adaptation strategies. The resources in this section discuss some of the thinking and ideas about what these changes could be, what is being done and what could be done.
