Lesson D4 - Adaptation and mitigation measures worldwide
Social sciences, Geography
The students realise that there are many solutions to deal with climate change, either through adaptation or mitigation, and that many people and organisations are already taking action. The students choose a climate adaption / mitigation project to work on.
We must adapt to the impacts of climate change and we must do our best to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
There are many people, communities and organisations around the world implementing adaptation and mitigation solutions. We can all do many things to help.
Adaptation will benefit us in the short term, while mitigation will be fundamental in the long term. Both must be considered together.
Adaptation measures help reduce vulnerability and/or exposure to climate change, reducing the risk of negative impacts.
We can implement measures of adaptation to climate change effects.
We all have a carbon footprint, but we can help reduce climate change if we decrease our emissions of greenhouse gases.
