The oceans, which once sustained us, are now threatening to swallow us whole. The world cannot continue to treat climate change as subject of negotiation. Climate change is not negotiable. It is a crisis.
- Palau President Johnson Toribiong
People have always adapted to environmental changes that they have taken climate change issues for granted. However, recent disasters in Asia, the United States and the rest of the world have been attributed to this phenomenon, displacing many people, particularly the impoverished and the vulnerable. Climate change has become an urgent concern that has pressed governments and non-government organizations alike to find ground-breaking strategies in impact adaptation and risk mitigation.
