Climate Action refers to efforts and initiatives taken to address and respond to the challenges of climate change. Climate change is primarily driven by human activities, such as the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial processes, leading to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and subsequent changes in the Earth's climate.
Climate action encompasses a wide range of activities aimed at mitigating and adapting to the impacts of climate change.
Mitigation: Actions taken to reduce or prevent the emission of greenhouse gases. This can involve transitioning to renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency, implementing sustainable land use practices, and promoting cleaner technologies.
Adaptation: Strategies and measures designed to minimize the negative impacts of climate change on communities, ecosystems, and economies. This may involve building resilient infrastructure, developing early warning systems, and implementing policies that enhance adaptive capacity.
