Adaptation:

  • Means accepting that there will be climate change, and adapting lifestyles to cope with these changes
  • Develop hill walking holidays in a former ski resort
  • Construct coastal defences to prevent coastal flooding caused by sea level rise
  • Return areas of floodplain back to their natural use
  • Use drought tolerant (possibly GM) crops
  • Abandon areas for less risky locations
