Climate Change in Environmental Impact Assessments

Since both adaptation to and mitigation of climate change need to be addressed at the programme level and implemented locally, regionally and globally; it is crucial that long term environment and climate change impacted are assessed in IRW development initiatives at the planning stage. The IPCC indicates that a region’s vulnerability to climate change depends largely on its adaptive capacity, sensitivity, and exposure to changing climatic patterns. So it is imperative to enhance our understanding of climate change process and also our capacity to assess its impacts.
