Adapting to climate change could have profound environmental repercussions, according to a new study from the University of East Anglia. Research in Nature Climate Change reveals that adaptation measures have the potential to generate further pressures and threats for both local and global ecosystems. Lead researcher Dr Carlo Fezzi, from UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences, said: “Climate change is a just a little bit more complicated than we previously thought.  We need to take into account not only the direct impact of climate change, but also how people will respond to such change - the impact of adaptation.“This is a whole new dimension to the climate change adaptation debate.”
