Comprehensive assessment of macroeconomic implications of climate change in Russia by 2030 including the authors’ original evaluations and forecasts is provided in the article. The weather and climate fluctuations impact on dynamics and qualitative indicators of selective industries of the Russian economy is contemplated in depth. Key directions and a set of measures of their adaptation to this impact along with those for reducing the climate change risks to the national economy are analyzed. It is argued that including the climate change factor into the development policy and industry and services’ modernization projects in Russia, particularly its consideration while introducing technological innovations are both necessary and economically effective. The role of science and scientific organizations as principal institutions and drivers of adaptation of the Russian economy and society as a whole to climate change is especially emphasized.
