|Abstract:||Climate change is a topic that can be heard daily during various. The climate has always had an important impact on the human living environment, agriculture, tourism, etc., and we have always had to adapt to climate changeability. Adaptation is even more strongly needed now, when climate change is the fact of the present and a growing threat to the future. Slovenia has a diverse relief and climate. There are mixed influences of the Alpine, Mediterranean and Pannonian climate on its territory, which further contributes to increased susceptibility to climate change. The most frequent natural disasters, which are the result of climate change in Slovenia, are floods, hail storms and drought. Every year, natural disasters claim a lot of lives around the world and cause increasingly significant material damage. Often, this is caused by climate change that leads to the formation of weather-related natural disasters. Recently, the frequency of the latter is even more prominent and the endangerment of people is consequently even greater. We are exposed to natural disasters on a daily basis and we are never fully protected from them. Even from this point of view, it is important that we know how to discern the level of threat we face, as the weather-related natural disasters, according to the Resolution on the National Security Strategy of the Republic of Slovenia, are the most common factor compromising the safety of citizens.
In the future, we will still ask the question about what kind of climate awaits for us, as it majorly affects the frequency of natural disasters, as well as economic, political, social and technological changes.|
