Climate Change Impact Coping Technologies & Strategies
What can a country do if it is sinking into the ocean? How can governments protect inhabitants of low-lying coastal areas? What agricultural technologies could be developed to counteract the erosion of arable land, the rising frequency of drought and desertification? What technologies and other measures offer economically feasible and socially acceptable ways of countering the adverse impact of extreme weather conditions on agriculture, the food chain, housing, zoning, economic production and how people live?
We believe that in future, social debate, technological development and economic endeavor will need to focus to a far greater extent on ways of adapting human life and general social conditions to the dramatic changes in environmental conditions.
In our view, climate risks that are already identifiable will also give rise to opportunities in major new markets, especially for the capital goods industry. The Climate Change Impact Coping Technologies & Strategies segment at Metzler Corporate Finance helps companies and institutions take advantage of these emergent developments by aligning their business portfolios accordingly.
