It is now widely accepted that adaptation will be necessary if we are to manage the risks posed by climate change. What we know about adaptation, however, is limited. While there is a well established body of scholarship proposing assessment approaches and explaining concepts, few studies have examined if and how adaptation is taking place at a national or regional level.

About the author (2011)

James Ford lives and works in the relatively sedate Midlands of England, and is constantly thankful that he doesn't have to contend with public transport or large volumes of traffic on a regular basis. Occasionally being stuck behind a tractor for several miles is a small price to pay for that! Macromedia Flash 8 represented his first serious interaction with a programming language, an epiphany whereupon his BA in Design for Interactive Media became far more focused on the Programming side of things than the Art (although it turned out okay). He considers himself to be fortunate to have encountered the Flash Platform when he did, as during that time between first contact and today, the Flash Platform has evolved at just the right pace to enable him to keep up with the latest shiny new features. In addition to developing Facebook-integrated Flash Player applications, James has also developed a few AIR applications, built a couple of Apps for iOS and Android devices, helped develop a load of websites, and blogs about all of this on his website: http: //www.psyked.co.uk/.
