Human responses to climate change can include any mix of inaction, mitigation, adaptation or geoengineering. The capacity of humans to respond to climate change is influenced by multiple factors that can act both alone and synergistically. These factors include perceptions/understandings of the problem, structure of the economy, cultural values, governance structures, political form, and access to decision making and political power.

The factors that influence capacity vary across these scales and over time.
