Abstract

Climate change challenges also present opportunities for influencing related regulations and Government intervention and creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship in individual corporate and collaborative responses to break free of constraints, help people to benefit and cope and achieve sustainable growth. Engagement and consultation with stakeholders to appreciate their perspectives and requirements may be advisable. Better understanding of developments and their impacts upon others can identify opportunities. Changing direction can be challenging and may require collective action. Better understanding of influencing factors and policy options can help to determine future scenarios.
