State of Adaptation

Though two years old, this study from the OECD is an interesting examination of where the developing world is with respect to implementing climate change adaptation policies and measures. It's likely that developed nations, despite their apparent high levels of adaptive capacity, are in a similar state of affairs. A recent report from the Heinz Center in Washington DC provides a bit of the developed world perspective with some case studies from the United States. Similarly, this article from the Boston Global highlights the fact that the the US has been somewhat slow in pursuing adaptation.
