Failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation is -
At the end of 2015, a big shift from business as usual was achieved with the signing of the Paris Agreement at COP21. The agreement indicated that all 195 countries planned to be more ambitious in their climate efforts. With the climate agreement taking effect in 2020, governments will likely implement new requirements for reporting on climate issues, with additional mitigation and adaptation measures being rolled out.
Vulnerability assessments help to scope the most serious risks using indices of climate exposure, hazard intensity and environmental outcomes.
