Climate Change Newsroom from the UNFCCC
One issue it has examined is 'adaptation to climate change':
Adaptation to global warming is a response to climate change that seeks to reduce the vulnerability of social and biological systems to climate change effects. Even if emissions are stabilized relatively soon, climate change and its effects will last many years, and adaptation will be necessary.
Adaptation to global warming - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
There are two main policy responses to climate change: mitigation and adaptation. Mitigation addresses the root causes, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while adaptation seeks to lower the risks posed by the consequences of climatic changes. Both approaches will be necessary, because even if emissions are dramatically decreased in the next decade, adaptation will still be needed to deal with the global changes that have already been set in motion.

Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC makes things very clear:
"Adaptation is the invitation we are being given to change behaviours - and consumption and production patterns that we have had for 100/150 years that are simply no longer sustainable."
