Adaptation



National Adaptation Strategy

Climate Change is not a far-off concern, but a real threat happening in before our eyes. The rise of average temperatures and sea levels and the increased frequency of natural disasters such as drought, flood and storms have imposed great pressure on already vulnerable ecological systems and the environment. Climate Change is further complicating WWF’s biodiversity conservation work. The poor and vulnerable are the first to be hit by climate change.

WWF China's climate change adaptation program hopes to:
  • Further investigate the potential impact of climate change on China’s environment and ecosystems through close collaboration with climate scientists.
  • Work with local partners to implement adaptation measures that improve the resilience of ecosystems and vulnerable communities through capacity building and climate compensation.
  • Collaborate with governments to include climate change adaptation into future social and economic development plans.
