(IPCC, 2014). This report assesses the climate risks and opportunities for societies, economies, and ecosystems around the world. It identifies vulnerable people, e.g., women, and low-income groups; industries, e.g., agriculture and fisheries; and ecosystems, e.g., coastal systems and low-lying areas, around the world. It argues that lack of preparedness, exposure overlapping with hazards pose risks and may be a target for smart actions for risk reduction.
