Formatted Abstract/Summary
Climate change has had a significant impact globally, predominantly for those vulnerable to its influence. The first book of its kind, The Climate Resilient Organization assesses the issues that have mounted for decision-makers in the field, whilst providing strategies to tackle them.

With a particular focus on building climate-resilient pathways for private sector organisations, the expert authors offer practical tools and decision-making criteria for evaluating adaptation needs, costs and benefits. Split into two parts this book begins with an analysis of the subject on a global scale; it continues by translating the science surrounding it whilst presenting it in a manner suited to local decision-makers.

Sustainability and climate adaptation scholars as well as managers will equally find this book to be an insightful read. Government Officers and Risk Managements professionals will also find the topics discussed beneficial to their work.
