Economic Perspectives on Climate Adaptation

Economic Perspectives on Climate Adaptation

(p.13) Chapter One Economic Perspectives on Climate Adaptation
Climate Change in California

Fredrich Kahrl

David Roland-Holst

University of California Press

A changing climate creates both economic risks and rewards, but these are very uncertain and are spread unevenly across space, time, and society. Climate-change adaptation thus presents complex issues of political economy. This chapter discusses five dimensions of this political economy: uncertainty, costs, timing, fairness, incentives, and institutions.

Keywords:   climatechange, economics, adaptation, cost, risk allocation, incentives, equity
