Global Commission calls for investment against climate change


The Global Commission on Adaptation issued a report recently highlighting the dangers of climate change and calling on governments and businesses to take urgent action to innovate and advance climate adaptation solutions in light of new research findings.
The report analyzed climate impacts and ultimately found "that adaptation can produce significant economic returns." The report specifically found "that investing $1.8 trillion globally in five areas from 2020 to 2030 could generate $7.1 trillion in total net benefits."
In addition to economic benefits, the report also found a number of "social and environmental benefits of adaptation," including increased harvests and protecting communities. It also called "for revolutions in three areas-understanding, planning, and finance".
