Adaptation Without Borders launch flagship report on transboundary climate risks

The report presents new evidence on 10 transboundary climate risks of global significance. These risks impact critical sectors and regions, including water resources in high-mountain environments, fish stocks in the open ocean, industrial supply chains, energy, and global finance systems as well as human health, livelihoods, mobility patterns, and physical and mental well-being.
