Climate Policy

The damage caused by climate change is becoming more serious every day … In order to stop the climate crisis, it is necessary not only to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also to implement policies that respond to and adapt to climate change as well as policies that respond to the damage that has already occurred.
