    Abstract

    Climate change is likely to be one of the greatest threats facing societies in the coming decades. In response, considerable international effort-most notably represented by the Kyoto Protocol-has gone into policies that will contribute to the reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases. However, it is increasingly recognised that communities also need to be planning for those climate impacts that are unavoidable even with concerted mitigation efforts.
