Topic: Policies, documents, treaties
The effort to deal with climate change and its impacts leads to international negotiations, treaties and strategic documents, which are the floor foundation of plans and goals on a national level. They also result in a number of mitigation measures: legally binding acts and new financial tools, such as carbon taxes or emissions trading systems, which are aimed to cut greenhouse gas emissions and prevent further global warming. Regions and municipalities also create their own adaptation plans, hoping these will help them tackle the impacts of climate change: they build green roofs in cities, create ponds and wetlands to retain more water or introduce more resilient crops.
