This Handbook places its emphasis on three key concepts: Interconnectivity, Continuity and Local Relevance. The first one, interconnectivity, refers to how the different climatic impacts and the associated adaptation options are connected. Through addressing one particular impact or implementing one adaptation option, there are generally knock-on effects affecting a multitude of people, sectors and economies (the ripple effect). Essentially, no activity or event occurs in isolation, social, economic and ecological systems are connected, and it is imperative that we make the best use of the opportunities that come from this interconnectivity. Just as climatic events and patterns are likely to keep changing, so must our responses!
