Competition for land and water is already fierce and more conflicts will occur especially in countries with poor governance. Loss of environmental resources will not stop, but investments in preserving and restoring nature will increase. Sea level rise, news about local and regional water and environmental crises, as well as reports on damage caused by extreme weather will alert more people about the need to change systems and behaviour, and make various groups, communities and entrepreneurs join initiatives in their localities. Driven by demands from civil society, communities as well as private companies, higher political priority will be given to adaptation and building resistance to climate changes.
