Projected changes in climate pose wide ranging impacts to natural environments and societies. Adapting to these changes and associated impacts is crucial to ensure sustainable development. Many regions, countries and communities are taking practical adaptation actions. This postcard-calendar depicts a selection of climate change related impacts, and showcases practical adaptation actions that are being undertaken to address these impacts and build resilience in communities, economies and ecosystems. Individual pages can be sent as postcards. Photos for the calendar were provided by NWP partner organizations and civil society.
