Is climate change all negative?

Are there ways to benefit from it?

Not all the impacts of climate change will be negative — it differs widely from region to region. In the Baltic Sea Region, for example, many see the overall increase in temperature which is projected by many scenarios, to bring a relative advantage to this area in terms of tourism. Moreover, potential benefits can be best taken advantage of by those prepared in time for potential changes. An understanding of one’s local circumstances, along with the potential climate related stressors are the keys to mapping your own vulnerability to climate change and variability. Furthermore, developing an action plan for decreasing your vulnerability, as well as being aware of the opportunities that might come to exist is necessary to then take advantage of the opportunities.
