Adaptation to climate change is not a new trend for humankind. The history of humankind’s adaptation to its climate can be traced back to the spark of civilization. It is from survival instinct that humans naturally developed different techniques and lifestyles in order to survive through environments from hot-humid-tropical to icy-windy-polar and populate the world. In the last two decades, however, climate activities have been interrupted by human development activities to such a degree that climate activities have become more unpredictable and extreme. To adapt to extreme weather events; such as more frequent floods and droughts, and more power hurricanes, humankind needs both great wisdom as well as international cooperation in tailoring new adaptation plans based on various abnormal climate activity scenarios.
