Objectives of public economic policy and the adaptation to climate change
AbstractMuch can be learned about adaptation by applying structures and methodologies already used in other research fields. This study employs a public economic policy approach to investigate how - or if at all - adaptation should be supported by the public sector. Three different fields of adaptation activity are identified which are especially relevant for government intervention and the study proposes ways in which government intervention could be conducted. The analysis takes into account that developing regions are particularly vulnerable and they have insufficient funds to adequately adapt to climate change.
