    The basic goal of the NCCAS is to increase Ghana’s resilience to climate change impacts now and in the future. This will be done by building Ghana’s capacity in the area of infrastructure, knowledge to deal with climate change impacts and reduce vulnerability in key . Climate change impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability span a vast range of topics. With the deepening of knowledge about climate change, we see connections in expanding and diverse areas, activities, and assets at risk. Early research focused on direct impacts of temperature and rainfall on humans, crops, and wild plants and animals. New evidence.

Climate change impacts, adaptation, and vulnerability: summary for policymakers, a report of Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and technical summary of the Working Group II report, a report accepted by Working Group II of the IPCC but not approved in detail.. [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It is policy-relevant and deserves to be widely read.' Richard Klein, Senior Research Fellow, Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), Sweden The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded in its report that much of the developing world is highly vulnerable to adverse impacts from climate change.

    Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation. Climate change impacts such as increases in temperature, changes in precipitation patterns, and changes in the occurrence of floods and droughts are predicted to have a large influence on forest and agricultural systems (Álvaro-Fuentes et al., ; Anaya-Romero et al., ; Conant et al., ; Lal. Climate change adaptation (CCA) is a response to global warming (also known as "climate change"). The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) defines adaptation as: 'the process of adjustment to actual or expected climate and its effects. In human systems, adaptation seeks to moderate or avoid harm or exploit beneficial opportunities. In some natural systems, human .

Introduction. Climate change is an important topic in research due to its significant impacts on human lives and society (Ng et al.,Wu and Ji, ).Existing studies show that over the past century, the climate of the Earth has undergone significant changes, and “global warming” is identified as one of its major characteristics (Wu and Ji, ).
