Climate change (CC) has become one of the pressing issues in several business and policy debates because it is one of the most serious and prolonged threats to the security and well-being of millions of people across all nations. Shortages of food, energy, water, medicine, healthcare and so forth make up a horrific picture of the adverse effects of CC on our planet. The increasingly powerful and more frequent occurrences of typhoons, droughts, floods, tornadoes, earthquakes and volcanic activities/eruptions have intensified such effects. It should be noted that some of these are man-made but others are natural, so solutions to address the causes are different. While, for many reasons, several nations worldwide have not been seriously pursuing any common agenda to either stop or slow down the process, or mitigate the impact of CC, adaptation to its consequences has absolutely become a real challenge for all relevant stakeholders, including states, the private sector, civil society and individuals in different countries.
