Development choices today influence the adaptive capacity of people and their governments well into the future. We cannot afford to delay adaptation planning and action. However, many development policies, plans, and projects currently do not take climate change into account due to a lack of awareness and clarity on how to effectively develop and integrate adaptation options.
