Abstract

A number of studies have been estimated adaptation costs of climate change for both developed and developing countries. This study critically reviews adaptation costs of climate change and made a comparison of these estimations and methods. Strategic responses and proper estimates are required to fortify the nations and community resilience to the implications of adverse effects of climate change. Adaptation measures are important to limit the negative impacts of climate change even though with adaptation there will be residual damages/costs. The estimated costs are useful for the basis of discussion and allocation of the amount of investment needed for tackling climate change adaptation. The costing of adaptation should also be robust and methodologically transparent considering residual damages as this has been influential in the debate concerning funding on the issues of climate change.
