ABSTRACT

Besides current trend and indicators of the evidences in climate change records and the atmospheric greenhouse gases concentration are heading to wrong direction so that it is more likely exceed the endurable range for the sustainable earth. However, international efforts are still limited with neither concrete target nor strategic plan. Thus, it is hard to expect any practical actions by both developed and developing country. Under these circumstances our policy and R&D options have been reviewed in a point of view of climate change risk management in comparison with present policy and R&D state of the major leading countries. The countermeasure committee for climate change was established to play a roll the highest mediation organization in Korea, However, it has enough capability neither to set the road map of national goal against climate change up nor to mediate discrepancies among the departments conducting policy and R&D on climate change issues. Accordingly, it does only formally carry out basic scientific research and climate change adaptation studies. It has been suggested to have a climate change risk management system consist of a solid control tower and cascading strategic components independent from the existing government organization to carry forward the systematic policy development and R&D. The suggested risk management system for climate change should be designed to provide a balance between governmental goal and value of action timely. The main mission of this control tower might be to set the national strategic plan up, and monitor and evaluate the action of government organization along the strategic plan. Furthermore, it plays a roll not only to handle the climate change in terms of impact and restriction but also to convert these crises of food, water and energy to opportunity for sustainable development.
