Climate adaptation engineering involves estimating the risks, costs, and benefits of climate adaptation strategies and assessing at what point in time climate adaptation becomes economically viable. Stochastic methods are used to model infrastructure performance, risk reduction, and effectiveness of adaptation strategies, exposure, and costs.

    Climate change adaptation aims at managing climate risks and hazards to an acceptable level, taking advantage of any positive opportunities that may arise. At the same time, developing suitable responses to hazards for communities and users of climate services is important in ensuring the success of adaptation measures.

    Climate change is a serious threat to agriculture and food security. Extreme weather conditions and changing patterns of precipitation lead to a decrease in the crop productivity. High temperatures and uncertain rainfall decrease the grain yield of crops by reducing the length of growing period. Future projections show that temperature would be increased by °C up to Evidence is growing that climate change is contributing to the burden of disease. According to the World Health Organization, in , climate change was estimated to be responsible for approximately per cent of worldwide diarrhoea and 6 per cent of malaria in some middle-income countries1 – diseases that.

This book outlines the impact of climate change in four developing country regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America and small island developing States; the vulnerability of these regions to future climate change; current adaptation plans, strategies and actions; and future adaptation options and needs.

Specifically, we estimate the impacts of climate change on mortality and expenditures on self-protection or adaptation to learn about the impacts of climate change.

This paper develops the first globally comprehensive and empirically grounded estimates of mortality risk due to future temperature increases caused by climate change. Using 40 countries' subnational data, we estimate age-specific mortality-temperature relationships that enable both extrapolation to countries without data and projection into future years while accounting for adaptation.

The challenges are to understand when evolution will occur and to identify potential evolutionary winners as well as losers, such as species. That is, climate change and the inability to fully adapt to changing climate patterns have worked together to alter the evolution of China's mortality pattern over the past 30 years.

This paper studies the historical weather-mortality relationship in China and employs historical annual fluctuations in temperature and precipitation measures to examine the relationship between weather shocks and mortality rates.

The Oregon Climate Change Research Institute, along with Adaptation International, created the Tribal Climate Adaptation Guidebook, which provides a framework for climate change adaptation planning in the context of existing tribal priorities.

The Guidebook builds on the on-going climate-related work in tribal communities, directly considers the unique issues facing Indigenous. Continuing differences in the mortality consequences of hot days suggests that health motivated adaptation to climate change may be slow and costly around the world.
