Abstract

The most recent IPCC Working Group I report for the 6th Assessment Report makes clear that the world is not on track in keeping the global temperature under the 1.5 or 2 °C targets set in the Paris Agreement. Many communities and regions are already experiencing climate impacts, such as increasing sea levels and flooding, more extreme storms, increases in devastating forest fires and heatwaves, and increasing coral bleaching. How we adapt to these impacts is critical in keeping our communities safe. Policymakers are therefore now asking whether adaptation actions are being implemented and to what extent adaptation actions are effective in reducing risk. The study from Berrang-Ford et al.1 published in this issue of Nature Climate Change comes at a crucial time as it provides global evidence of the extent of adaptation implementation as well as which adaptation measures work, under what conditions and for whom and why.
