Adapting for a green economy: companies, communities and climate change


This report provides insights on the role of businesses adaptating to climate change. The report provides several case studies that not only serve as models for other companies, but also provides evidence that private sector adaptation at the nexus of company needs; and the needs of vulnerable communities in developing countries makes good business sense.

The report is aimed at national and international policymakers involved in climate change and sustainable development dialogues and decision-making, including those who will participate in the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in 2012 (Rio+20). The measures highlighted in this report provide a series of first steps for galvanising business action on adaptation. It provides actionable information that can help create effective strategies that benefit business and communities, coupled with common-sense suggestions for supportive government policy.
