Society has limited resources to help individuals and communities adapt to climate change. Panel (a) illustrates that there are finite resources available and that individuals and communities are starting from different levels of readiness to adapt. Panel (b) illustrates the option for society to choose an equal allocation of resources where everyone gets the same amount of help, or as illustrated in panel (c), society can choose to distribute resources equitably to give people what they need to reach the same level of adaptation.
