Global Warming

Climate change is among the most serious environmental problems of our own time, and it threatens to wreak havoc on humankind in the future unless drastic steps are taken to curtail greenhouse gas emissions. Rapid climate change, also known as climate change, involves both regional climate changes and global warming due to human carbon emissions, resulting in extreme weather events, drought and wildfires, affecting people around the planet. 1 approach to reduce or even eliminate the danger of global warming would be to employ strategies such as adaptation, which involves adapting the means, practices and infrastructure of the people and communities to change with the climate.

During the last ten years, with the help of satellites, space exploration has advanced to a very large level and we now know more about our environment than ever before. Satellite images reveal that the speed of change is accelerating and evidence is mounting which indicates a troubling increase in the frequency and intensity of natural disasters, which might be attributed to climate change. While the area of the threat of climate change may still be uncertain, there is no doubt that it poses an unprecedented challenge for society and people everywhere to adapt to cope with the changing climate. Rapid adaptation is needed to safeguard people and ecosystems from long-term damage. Adaptation projects aim to build on successful principles and policies in the area of adaptation, such as adaptation plans, monitoring and research, global adaptation applications and funding for adaptation projects, adaptation partnerships and adaptation policy development.

Quick changes in the atmosphere, ocean and ice caused by human activities have increased the possibility of natural disasters for the last several decades. While natural disasters are not likely to vanish, the slow increase in the frequency and seriousness of these events over the years highlights the need for adaptation planning and reaction. Adaptation solutions involve both cost-effective and effective strategies for individuals and communities. These include building up resilience of those physical structures of communities such as homes and infrastructure, research and monitoring efforts to assess the vulnerability of their environment to climate change, production of shelters and other security procedures and changing lifestyle and food habits of people to manage climate change. While climate change is a really real and potentially catastrophic problem, it has the ability to be addressed through many different adaptation strategies.
