Climate Change

As one of today’s main global challenges, climate change has amplified the urgency to move towards a more sustainable society. Combating climate change requires a significant reduction in greenhouse gas (ghg) emissions, as well as various degrees of adaptation globally. However, both these mitigation pledges at the (inter)national level, as well as the adaptation measures must be translated to the local level in order to ensure global preparedness for potential climate changes.
