Our Solution Climate Change Risk Management is a work programme to stabilise GHG levels to prevent irreversible anthropogenic climate change while assuring ecosystems regeneration, food security and sustainable economic development. The challenge is to face uncertainty, complexity, scale and delays between action and response. Common impact assessments normally examine the consequences of climate change but do not always properly evaluate likelihoods or decline real action plans. Vertech defines mitigation plans, continuously updated, to manage risks adequately.
