The climate is changing. Human activities are at the center of these changes, which is good news, because this means that there is scope for action. There are many solutions available to us in order to protect people, which is what we call adaptation. But there are also many solutions which allow us to reduce the emissions that are affecting our climate, while at the same time ensuring access to energy which is so important for development.
