Adaptation and mitigation are usually treated as separate issues. But often adaptation measures are equally a form of mitigation: switching to another form of fuel to address emerging resource scarcity can have mitigation effect by using a cleaner energy form.

Does anyone have any examples or case studies that address these overlaps?
