Can we eliminate the risks caused by climate change?

No, extreme events will sometimes occur that exceed the capacity of actions taken. However, together we can reduce the risk substantially through adaptation for most properties.

The report indicates that through adaptation we can reduce the impacts of sea level rise from a factor of 10 up to a factor of 100.

The most effective action would be a real reduction of global greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation), bringing the outcome from high to a medium or low degree of climate change.
