Adaptation to climate change is one of the two basic strategies that United Nations international agreements have setup to prevent the adverse consequences and damages to the natural and human environment following climate change. It consists of initiatives and measures to reduce the vulnerability, and enhance the resilience, of natural and human systems against actual or expected climate change effects. After an analysis about the implications of such a strategy, it is shown that adaptation is, and will be in the future, the only unavoidable planning process, which must be utilized by decision makers and planners to cope with the challenges of an evolving environment. Since climate change is now in progress and the Mediterranean area (and Italy) is one of the most vulnerable area to climate change in the world, both for the natural environment and historic and cultural heritage, the adaptation strategy must be implemented now. Adaptation in Italy is fundamental for the coastal zone integrated management, for freshwater resource protection and for infrastructure and settlements planning and management.
