Adaptation strategies for policy and planning

The following panels explore in more depth adaptation strategies that governments are adopting in policy and planning to adapt to climate change. Strategies are guides to action important for governments to design and implement appropriate policies and plans.  Climate change may demand new kinds of strategies, for example, to deal with situations that have no historical precedent or large uncertainties.  In other situations past strategies may be appropriate with modification.
