I thought I would share this, maybe helpful to some of you.  What I need to spend more is how adaptation and mitigation can be clearly defined.   It is absolutely right that IPCC says “Both impacts and emissions, for example, are linked in complex ways to underlying socio-economic and technological development paths.”  But I think it is for that reason that adaptation is not necessarily limited to reducing the impacts of climate stresses on humans and natural system, while mitigation is about reducing green house gas emissions.
