Top 3 climate change adaptation outcomes at the UN climate talks

Source(s):  Acclimatise

The top 3 climate change adaptation outcomes of the UN Climate Summit according to Acclimatise were in the field of climate finance, loss and damage and 'the Caring for Climate Business Forum,' which offered the business world an opportunity to network and share best practices in climate change adaptation and mitigation.

"In summary Warsaw just about did the minimum that could be achieved to avoid being dubbed a total failure. It forms a basis for further discussions, but most of the central questions around adaptation finance remain unanswered...In the meantime the UNFCCC process seems increasingly inadequate as a mechanism to deal with climate change impacts. The main lesson from Warsaw is that governments, businesses and development agencies simply cannot wait for a global agreement; they must all act now."
