Globally, “The world’s population was about 7 billion in 2010 and is expected to grow much more. The expected growth is highest in parts of the world that are vulnerable to hunger and adverse climate conditions…” 5 Solutions for these pressing issues through governmental intervention are being discussed internationally. As of now the “… noble intention of feeding the ever growing population has proven to be efficient in some parts of the world, until now it has failed - at the same time - to provide food security for many parts of the world”. 5 These perspectives are of major concern in the adaptation to climate change because agricultural innovation is needed to overcome droughts and the changing seasons in order to continue to supply the world with …show more content…

Some populations have also raised their homes to overcome floods, others have moved and settle elsewhere, while some government agencies and programs have begun planting salt-resilient crops as well as stored fresh water. Additionally, the United Nations Development Programme who’s mission includes helping out coastal regions to develop adaptation to their changing environment and implement action have innovated coastal regions with the actions mentioned above. 7 With the climate change weather phenomena, the role of adaptation plays a significant part in managing stability.
