Climate adaptation is important to fight climate change

The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) focused on the fact that the risks to transportation, coming from climate change, especially coastal transport infrastructure, threaten global trade and development. Damage, disruption and delays that may be caused by extreme weather events and climate change pose a huge economic risk to closely interlinked global supply chains.
