The chapter represented examines vulnerabilities, impacts, costs and forms of adaptation of the human system in connection with the events generated by climate change.

Most of the data reported by the chap- ter. In fact, are only reported very specific and isolated case studies, which do not give a representation that provides a clear picture of the situation.

No one has a comprehensive response on long-term potential impacts of climate change. Even the report compiled by the IPCC shows the limited knowledge of the possible changes that will affect human society in the coming decades because Salvatore Zingale A concept that emerges several times in the chapter covers the importance of the degree of economic development and the geographic location in deter- mining the impacts of the violence of these events.
