According to the secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which handles climate change concerns (UNFCCC), adaptation is the adjustment to natural or human systems following current or future climatic stimuli or their consequences in order to minimize harm or maximize advantages. Soil degradation and surface subsidence are examples of non-climatic phenomena that are included in the broader concept of adaptation. Adaptation can occur naturally; as a result of market changes, or as a result of purposeful adaptation methods and initiatives. Many disaster risk reduction approaches can directly assist with adaptation.
