Tackling climate change
Efforts to address climate change involve both mitigation and adaptation strategies. Mitigation aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through measures like transitioning to renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, and reforestation. Adaptation involves adjusting to the current and anticipated impacts of climate change, such as building infrastructure to withstand extreme weather events and implementing water management strategies.
International agreements, such as the 2015 Paris Agreement, aim to unite countries in their efforts to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. Countries commit to setting and achieving their own emission reduction targets.
Addressing climate change is a complex global challenge due to its interconnected nature and the need for coordinated action across countries, industries, and sectors. Balancing economic growth with environmental sustainability remains a critical consideration.
