Developing countries and low-income communities are already being disproportionately affected by the consequences of climate change including sea level rise, increased frequency of extreme weather events, longer and more intense droughts and wildfires, threats to biodiversity, and others. Design and implementation of place-based adaptation and resilience plans is needed for continued human thriving. The goal of this case is to mitigate climate change as well as support communities in adaptation and resilience while facing its consequences.
The most recent IPCC report calls to address causes of anthropogenic climate change within the next three decades. New, innovative ways of lowering emissions, withdrawal of carbon from the atmosphere, and renewable energy production will be necessary. This challenge therefore calls for strategies to address climate change in the context of global energy resources. The majority of water is used in power generation, industry, and agriculture, often leading to depletion of aquifers. Industrial and agricultural activity may pollute water bodies, further threatening human and ecosystem health.here
