This book is a well-organized overview of policy options and examples for climate adaptation/resilience. I was surprised to find that I was eager to keep reading about climate finance and catastrophe insurance because it was so well-written.

First off, I think this book is good if you are just getting into the area of climate change adaptation. It is particularly useful for American's entering the climate change adaptation / resiliency space - particularly if you are entering government (municipal, sub-national, and national), industry, corporate sectors, etc. If you are not American, it can still be helpful; but there are many other resources out there that would likely be more applicable to your work / life than this book.

As the title suggests, this book concentrates on resilience, which in this context means resilience against the consequences of climate change. The authors who are experts in the field, describe various ways organizations and governmental entities can provide that resilience.

My first read on the subject et resilience on climate change. It was a very interesting take on how the society can prepare, be it in term of require law change, economic and even military.

This approach, resilience, is also applicable to many other things. Even if personally I cannot directly apply those suggested changes. It can help me decide on how to vote or how to simply talk about various subjects (and of course climate change).

The last 15 pages moved it from 4 stars to 5 stars. This book is a good balance of breadth and depth. Critically important and very broad impacts across society.

Blueprint for surviving climate change

The collective and cultivated ignorance about climate change that is now enveloping the world is a crime against humanity. These authors detail how to move forward.

Smart, clear eyed book about the types of policies we need to adapt to climate change. The focus on adaptation leaves no room for fretting about what is coming or even if we can stop it - it conveys a sense of hope and practicality on what we need to do now.
