Climate change poses a significant challenge to human security, socioeconomic development, and the environment due to an increase in climate-related risks with more frequent and intense extreme weather events. It is vital for countries to identify climate risks, reduce these risks through mitigation, and adapt to these risks---thereby increasing resilience and reducing vulnerability. This study informs decision makers regarding major climate change risks to development and provides feasible policy recommendations for consideration to increase resilience and reduce vulnerability in the water, agriculture, and natural resource sectors of the People's Republic of China.
