In this paper the authors Peter Kuch and Simone Gigli have been applying their economist’s thinking to the challenge of how to prioritise and appraise adaptation options in developing countries. As we foresee plenty of work ahead of us in order to make adaptation happen, we hope this work on economic approaches to climate change adaptation will both help the conceptual discussion along and will assist us in getting the priorities right in practical adaptation action.
