marginal costs of mitigation

Synonyms

marginal mitigation costs

Definition

Mitigation (of disaster risk and disaster) is the lessening of the potential adverse impacts of physical hazards (including those that are human-induced) through actions that reduce hazard, exposure, and vulnerability; mitigation (of climate change) is a human intervention to reduce the sources or enhance the sinks of greenhouse gases - marginal costs have to be considered when calculating and estimating the economics of adaptation - these would be costs outside of the direct strategy itself but should be considered (IPCC-SREX, 2014)
