    Abstract

    Since the benefits of adapting to the adverse impacts of climate change will accrue primarily (albeit not exclusively) to individual countries and communities within them, the task of adaptation is often considered to require primarily domestic policy responses. As such, adaptation seems to stand in contrast to mitigation, where the necessity of international cooperation to protect global atmospheric stability is clearer
